No competition - but still winners...

Although the Viennale is held - as the most important Austrian film event - as a non-competitive festival, still there are prices awarded, including the Vienna Film Prize, the FIPRESCI prize or the standard Viennale audience award.
The "Erste Bank MehrWERT Filmpreis" is provided - now for the third season - by the main sponsor of the Viennale. The best Austrian festival entries will be awarded - as last year the feature film DER GLANZ DES TAGES by Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel - by an independent jury (Franz Schwartz - former head of Stadkino, Silvia Bohrn - cultural studies scholar, Werner Brix - comedian).
We may be excited to see who can convince the jury in 2013 and who may look forward to receive the price at the ceremony at the Viennale Closing Gala, which is a two-month scholarship in New York including a film screening!
