Since 2004, the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival Linz has devoted its program each year in April to idiosyncratic and contemporary auteur cinema from Europe. From April 20 -25, 2016 CROSSING EUROPE offers international film and press representatives and guests of the film industry (nearly 700 accredited festival participants) and the local cinema audience a program with approximately 160 outstanding films, documentaries and short films.

With hand-picked socio-political films and numerous film guests present, CROSSING EUROPE again seeks to arouse pleasure in unconventional cinema from Europe and pleasure in a – sometimes radical or even sensuous – artistic engagement with the (life) world that surrounds us.

Günther Schrammel, CEO at NTS Retail, is very proud of the ongoing cooperation with CROSSING EUROPE that started out in 2015: “By supporting this great festival, we wanted to further express our deep commitment as cultural sponsor in our region. NTS Retail has also been a long-term cooperation partner of the Ars Electronica Festival for several years now. Festivals such as these constitute important cultural projects and we want to contribute our part and take up social responsibility.
