The Vienna Science Film Festival is a meeting place for the scientific films and sci-fi films in Austria.

A film festival that celebrates all things science+fiction <3.

Our screening is going to be on the 6th and 7th of November 2020 at the SCHIKANEDER Kino / Bühne / Bar. More information can be found on our website

Filmmakers and scientists may submit their films or VR works in the field of science, artifical intelligence, natural history, art and science fiction.
Work can be films, games and virtual reality. The categories are documentary and fiction feature and short films.

Film is a medium that many of us connect over. With the increasing prevalence of mini-movie-making machines (smartphones), we think film is a great and accessible form of science communication!

There will be an exhibition and screenings.

You can look up our current season under the following link:

A trophy for the overall winners of every category and certificates for every finalist.

All films which are shown during the year 2020 are automatically part of the competition. The award ceremony takes place in September 2020.

Please notice that we will only screen films in the movie theatres, which are not open for the public. Also we will only screen the award winning feature film!
