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 postponement of Forward Festival Vienna
Forward Festival Vienna unfortunately can not take place in April as originally planned due to the health crisis resulting from the Corona virus. As event organizers we are of course monitoring the situation closely and following the regulations by the authorities. After working with our speakers and partners we decided not to cancel, but to postpone the event to a new date after the summer: October 8th-9th 2020. All already bought tickets remain valid. We are looking forward to seeing you all in fall!
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 October 7th to October 10th. We’re always looking for some extra helping hands!
How can my company partner with Forward Festival?
