The Salzburger Filmkulturzentrum DAS KINO is the only arthouse cinema in Salzburg that screens films beyond the mainstream blockbusters. We focus on quality films with diverse cultural content. Besides Austrian and European films, as well US-independent productions, films from Africa, Asia, and Latin America are part of our program. All films are screened in original version with German subtitles.
For the Salzburger Filmkulturzentrum DAS KINO, it is very important to support the local Austrian film scene and to support local artists. Discussions Q&A’s with directors and artists are a way for us to communicate with our audience in order to promote the value of arthouse cinema.
To be a member of Europa Cinemas highlights our focus on European quality cinema and our artistic direction of programming European independent films.
The Salzburger Filmkulturzentrum DAS KINO curates special-screenings, retrospectives, special programs, and film clubs. We also program films for young audience and communities with special interest.
Besides, every year we organize the unique Mountain Film Festival “Abenteuer Berg-Abenteuer Film”, where we show short films, documentaries and fiction films related to alpine sports, mountains, nature, and adventure.
The biennial “Latin American Film Festival” shows a variety of brand new Latin American films with socio-political topics and endorses the inclusion of the underrepresented Latin American cinema in the context of a European cinematic arthouse landscape.
