The „SUBURBINALE“ is the only filmfestival worldwide focusing on international film productions reflecting the challenges and chances of suburban life.

This year we recived 300 submissions from 60 countries!

We are located in the eastern suburbs of Vienna/Austria, where the nationalpark „Donauauen“ emerges from the city´s borders. This is also the gateway to Austria´s biggest vegetable garden – the Marchfeld.

Even though the area offers culture, wide open spaces and a vast variety of freshly grown fruits and vegetables – literally in the backyard – people tend to head towards the city. This situation is no particular case, it occurs in nearly every periphery around the world. People drive downtown for working and return in the evening for sleeping.

We want to foster a culture of co-thinking new ways of creating visions in fast changing environments!


September 13th to 16th 2018

our program will be published end of august

Location map

The former cinema was closed more than 30 years ago and is now a supermarket. Austria ́s only (!) drive-in-cinema closed in 2015. Times are changing and so does our environment. BUT instead of complaining, we want to create and inspire! This is why we decided to organize the SUBURBINALE.

The 1st international filmfestival focusing on challenges and chances in suburbs will be accommodated in the former canteen of a plant which gave for many years jobs and identity to this region.


The festival is funded by the province of Lower Austria

and kindly supported by the community of Gross-Enzersdorf!
