From its scattered beginnings in the 1980s the Austrian new wave has developed into a cinema with broad international recognition. Out of a film culture originally starved of funds have emerged rich and eclectic works by film-makers that are now achieving the international recognition that they deserve: Barbara Albert, Michael Haneke, Ulrich Seidl, and Stefan Ruzowitzky, to give four examples. This comprehensive critical anthology, by leading scholars of Austrian film, is intended to introduce and make accessible this much under-represented phenomenon. Although the book covers the full development of the new cinema it focuses on the period that has brought it international recognition: 1998 to the present. New Austrian Film is the only book currently available on this topic and will be an essential reference work for academics, students and filmmakers, interested in modern Austrian film.

Review:

New Austrian Film introduces a generation of Austrian and Austrian-trained Central European filmmakers to world cinema scholars and cinephiles, opening a vista on a resolutely political and multicultural cinema ... This volume is well-balanced and conceived to provide historical, theoretical, and aesthetic frameworks that will draw both the professional and the enthusiast into a contemporary cinema too long overlooked as a distinctive voice on the international stage. --Katherine Arens, Professor of German Studies and Comparative Literature, University of Texas at Austin

The essays in this volume provide both historical context and critical analysis for the politically and aesthetically significant filmmaking now being done in Austria. This is an exemplary collection, comprehensive in scope and rich in fascinating detail, that will help bring closer attention to a remarkable national cinema. --Chris Fujiwara, writer and critic; editor of the International Federation of Film Critics journal, Undercurrents; author of studies on Jacques Tourneur, Jerry Lewis, and Otto Preminger.
