Ulrich Seidl withdraws his films from VIENNALE

It was announced that Ulrich Seidl has withdrawn his two films Paradise: Love and Paradise: Faith from the VIENNALE. Festival press office cites differences between Seidl and the VIENNALE Director Hans Hurch concerning screening terms. “I don’t find it correct that Austrian films are not given the same significance as international films which are screend in the prime time”, stated Seidl earlier today in a comment to the local newspaper Kurier.
