Each year since 1995, the Viennale has asked a great, international director to make his or her own personal contribution to the festival: a contribution in the form of a small, approximately one-minute film, which, like a trailer, is used as a kind of introduction to the festival. But the idea isn’t a trailer in the strict sense of the word. The concept is to create a short, autonomous work, a cinematic moment that stands alone and for nothing and no-one else. It’s a kind of bet the festival makes that has no restrictions in terms of form, contents or aesthetics.

Over the years this has resulted in a series of absolutely unique, exceptional works. Directors who have previously accepted our invitation to make a trailer for the Viennale include many great names such as Stan Brakhage, Agnès Varda, Jonas Mekas, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Jean-Luc Godard, David Lynch and Chris Marker. Each of them has created his/her own cinematic world between home movie and political essay, music film and minimal étude, mysterious story and radical, aesthetic abstraction. They are, as Jonas Mekas once remarked, not trailers, but “real little films”. HH
