This section takes us on an intense journey through the history of Austrian abstract cinema and its particular relation to Nature, from the stroboscopic discs of Simon Stampfer (1832) to the quasi-pictorial expressionism of Martin Anibas (1990), the complex computer-generated imagery of LIA (2008) or the flickering abstraction of Billy Roisz (2012).

Curated and introduced by Thomas Renoldner, this Austrian Short Film Panorama section will be screened on February 2nd 2014 at the fifth edition of Punto y Raya Festival, which this year, takes place in partnership with Reykjavík Visual Music Festival at HARPA (the Reykjavík Concert Hall, Iceland).

We heartfully thank the collaboration of ASIFA AUSTRIA, FilmArchiv Austria and VIS (Vienna Independent Shorts).
