The Viennese Gartenbaukino owes a special place amongst Vienna’s cinemas. Built in 1960, the cinema exudes the generosity and self-confidence of a classic premier venue. With its impressive 115 square meter big screen and 736 seats, it is Austria’s largest cinema.
Located at the heart of Vienna, lavish and with a wonderful flair, the cinema combines the benefits of a great atmosphere, with the qualities of a diverse and changeable venue.
Frequently asked questions
Important information on the current Covid-19 issue
Due to the current situation the festival in Vienna has to be postponed. We are monitoring the situation closely and are in constant exchange with the relevant entities to figure out how to proceed. We are hoping to be able to give you an update on the new festival dates within the next 1-2 weeks. All tickets remain valid, you guys are the first ones to get an update as soon as we have it. Thanks for your patience!
I bought a ticket from a wrong ticket category or for a wrong city. What can I do?
Your ticket is transferable before validation. If you cannot make it to Forward Festival yourself, we encourage you to give/sell the ticket to another person. Make someone’s day a special one!
Can I get a refund for my ticket?
Unfortunately, we don’t do refunds, but since your name is not on the ticket – thus the ticket is not for a specific person – it is possible that you give/sell the ticket to another person before registration.
Where can I sign up for workshops?
Some of our workshops have a limited capacity of participants. You need to sign up in advance to snatch one of the spots. Last minute places will be available 15 minutes before the start of the workshop at the location. You can find all the information on how to sign up at the detailed description of each workshop. Some workshops are subject to an extra fee. You can buy access to the workshop in our ticket shop.
I'm at school or doing an apprenticeship. Am I still eligible for a student ticket?
Yes, you are! Everyone under 28 years old (on the first day of the festival) with a valid ID that proves that they’re currently enrolled in an officially recognized educational institution, can access the festival with a student ticket. If you are not sure whether your education/training is eligible, write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there volunteer opportunities at Forward Festival?
Yes, there are. Just send an email to email@example.com with your contact details, CV and availability between April 15th to April 18th. We’re always looking for some extra helping hands!
