who – which 32nd Film Festival in Vienna City Hall Square, which will take place from July 2 to September 4 this year, begins with the presentation of an instrumental concert in Ukraine. The event at Vienna’s Ernst Abel Stadium in March brought together local pop greats such as Bilderbuch, Wanda, Zeiler and Speer. Throughout the summer, there is music notable from the opera, classical, pop and rock areas.
“For more than three decades, the film festival has provided so much joy and great emotions at Vienna’s Rathausplatz,” Mayor Michael Ludwig was quoted as saying in Wednesday’s broadcast. “I am convinced that many people will come to Ratosplatz again. We all hope for beautiful summer evenings in a great setting.”
