Film Education

In school or out of school: short film is a an educational classic with various fields. VIS is a qualified contact person in this matter with years of experience. We combine our activities under a distict plattform, You can find information about former projects and contact details to our film education team there.

Kijvis film education stands for international arthouse films, workshops, and festival feeling for a younger audience. Here we not only promote cultural development and a reflected exploration of the medium of film, but we also want to foster enthusiasm for an informed film culture. This year, we support students and trainees of various ages in programming their own slate.

The programs are for children and young adults aged ten to eighteen (and up). (kl)


This year’s youth jury not only awards the winner of the Austrian Competition but also shows their own best-of program with their favorite films from the competition. In a joint project of VIS and the organization Jugend am Werk, the 2019 youth jury is made up of apprentices of the “Workshop for Technical Professions,” the “Center of Technology,” and STAR Vocational School. In two screenings and discussions with two experts, the young adults choose their favorites and present the Youth Jury’s Favorites during the VIS festival in the filmmakers’ presence. (cs)

The project is organised by Stefan Huber / Clara Schermer / Kim Lange and realised with kind support of the Stadt Wien – Magistrat für Bildung und außerschulische Jugendbetreuung and Jugend am Werk. We would also like to thank ViennaFX and Blautöne who are providing a post production voucher worth 1.000 Euros as a prize.


Additionally, the workshop The Mechanics Of Motion takes place in cooperation with VIS Spotlight guest Anna Vasof.

In this workshop everyday objects and activities are used to gain surprising insight into the experience of the illusions of moving pictures: From cell-phone selfies and freehand drawings brought to life by animation to performative actions that use the whole body, the participating teenagers are invited, first and foremost, to get creative themselves, to question movements, and to undertake experiments with the moving image under the supervision of Anna Vasof.
