The DEADLINE for accreditation for the upcoming festival ended on 20th March 2017.

From now on we can only accreditate in exceptional cases. For that please adress your requests (including a short motivation) regarding an accreditation for CROSSING EUROPE directly to our guest office (guestssymbolcrossingEuropepunktat).

Please note: In case of approval, a 10€ accreditation-fee will be charged when picking up your festival badge.

Accredited guests can attend all screenings and the events of the framework program – with the exception of the Opening Reception and the Opening Films, which are by invitation only. In addition, accreditation entitles the holder to “priority” for the Nightline in the OK Deck and a festival package with the bilingual festival catalogue.

Roughly 160 feature films and documentaries are included in the program of the 14th edition of the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival Linz, presenting socio-politically aware and artistic-eccentric filmmaking for discussion in Linz. The focus here is on issues of identity politics as well as an engagement with the realities of life in Europe today, which the five opening films clearly illustrate.

More about the program HERE.


Along with the hand-picked film program, Crossing Europe again offers numerous discussion and networking events in the supporting program, as well as exhibitions, installations at the OK and an audiovisual live performance at the Deep Space 8K (AEC) that are all well worth seeing.

More information about the supporting program HERE.


Starting every evening at 10 pm, the musical Nightline in the OK Deck offers an opportunity to extend the festival day until late in the night. The audience can expect an outstanding line-up.
