The Österreichische Kinopreise 2023 were awarded yesterday, Friday 1 December, at the Das Kino in Salzburg. Six Austrian cinemas received major financial support for their outstanding work, including the Stadtkino in Vienna, the Schubert Kino in Graz and the Kino Freistadt.

The importance of cinemas

Once again this year, for the second time since 2021, the renowned Österreichische Kinopreise were awarded. Already in 2021, following a difficult period such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Culture decided to financially support several Austrian cinemas that had distinguished themselves for their special management. A very essential action, considering that even before the pandemic, many cinemas were in a difficult financial situation. And so, since 2021, this new, important award, which is awarded every two years, has been established. The Österreichische Kinopreise 2023 was therefore awarded yesterday, Friday 1 December, at the Das Kino in Salzburg, winner of the main prize two years ago.

Six Austrian cinemas, therefore, received significant financial support for their outstanding management. The Stadtkino in Vienna, but also the Schubert Kino in Graz and the Kino Freistadt, just to give a few examples, were honoured with the prestigious Österreichische Filmpreise 2023. The common goal of each of the award-winning cinemas is, first and foremost, to offer audiences a particularly attentive and varied programme each time, but also to carry out their work in an ecologically sustainable manner. And such realities, in an era in which streaming platforms are now part of our everyday life, seem even more precious to us.

The jury of the Österreichische Kinopreise 2023 consists of Verena Altenberger (actress, co-president of the Akademie des Österreichischen Films), Brigitte Bidovec (sustainability expert, Diagonale) and Julia Schafferhofer (journalist, film critic).

Hoping, therefore, that no one ever forgets the importance of our beloved cinemas, here are all the winners of the Österreichische Kinopreise 2023. Congratulations to all and see you in 2025!
