About the Festival

The power of light and the poetry of darkness: do you dream what you see or do you see what you dream?

Films, concerts, live events and cinema under the stars: The “Netzhaut Ton Film Festival” Wiener Neustadt takes place in the Mayor’s Garden (“Bürgermeistergarten”) right in front of the “Museum St. Peter an der Sperr” and in the cinema in the Wiener Neustadt city theatre (“Stadttheater”).

Where the image is upside down

The focus of the Netzhaut Ton Film Festival Wiener Neustadt is not on the multitude of films but on the content and approaches. Double features combine a feature film and a documentary to form a thematic focus, looking for areas of friction, exploring social combat zones and demanding discourse.


The music program transforms the city centre into a venue and listening area and connects the city theatre and the Mayor's Garden. It will be curated and designed by “Die Strottern”, Klemens Lendl and David Müller in 2020 … and they will be performing as well!


We show international feature films, documentary films and up-and-coming young filmmakers as part of our three-part program series. In the presence of the filmmakers, the selection is dedicated to this year's focus on “Truth and Reality”.

Up-and-coming filmmakers

They come from film schools and they will shape the image of our world in the future: genuine, fresh, humorous, furious, lamenting, rebellious. Today they show what we will see tomorrow: the filmmakers of tomorrow!
