Each year we are delighted to highlight some of the incredible Austrian films which are screened as part of the BFI London Film Festival. This year there is a stellar selection from documentary to short film and everything in between.
A film about nothing is one of the year’s finest documentaries, and a lyrical tribute to its late director, Michael Glawogger. After Glawoggers sudden death in 2014, the film was realised and finished by his long term collaborator Monika Willi.
