Years running: 26 (since 1994)


Vienna's International Queer Film Festival.


In 1996 the Viennale, Vienna's International Film Festival, invited the festival to be part of their SPECIALS series. Until 2001 identities - though independent as such (artistically and as an organisation) - it was part of Viennale and its budget. Fast growing as it was - 25% more viewers and films in each edition - it soon became obvious that the festival needed to look for funding and financing sources of its own. Now identities is the second largest international film event in Vienna. It considers films and videos of all genres by, about and of interest to lesbians, gay men, bisexual, transgendered, queer people.



Films/videos must be Austrian Premieres.
