The Night of the Light is a short film and treatment competition initiated by Wien Energie in 2009 and organized in cooperation with VIS since 2012. Each year, Viennese filmmakers are asked to submit treatments for a three minute film dealing with everything energy. This year's topic was Energie erleben – experience energy. Out of the many submissions, an expert jury as well as the online community voted for the best five concepts. Each of them received a budget of 3,000 euros from Wien Energie to realize their film. On the second day of the festival – Wednesday the 29th of May – the films will be shown for the first time in our main cinema and the best will be given a jury award and an audience award.
