Covid-19 Infos

Last updated: September  22, 2021

Dearest SLASHies,
To keep everyone safe throughout the festival, we ask you to stick to the following guidelines:

  • At SLASH screenings, the 3-G rule applies. This means that you either have to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test (antigen test result valid for 24 hrs, PCR test valid for 48 hrs), a COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of a previous infection. Please have your documents ready before entering the cinema.

  • ATTENTION: Starting 1st of October we can only accept PCR-test results as evidence of a negative COVID-19 test due to stricter restrictions for events in Vienna. This means antigen-tests results will no longer be valid as admission for our screenings.
  • Like last year, there will be allocated seating, free choice of seating is not an option.

  • Please wear an FFP2 mask at all times, also while staying at your allocated seat and during the film.

  • Where possible, ticketing will be contactless. In order not to risk crowding we ask you to buy your tickets online beforehand.

  • We are also obliged to have contact tracing at the festival. Just like last year, we vouch to absolutely obliterate and annihilate everybody’s personal data 28 days later. Pinky promise!

  • To avoid overcrowding in the foyer, we kindly ask you to arrive just in time for the screenings of your choice. After the film, you will exit through the backyard (Filmcasino), exit on the right (Metro), and emergency exit (Schikaneder).

We are working on securing every aspect of the festival to protect us and guarantee a safe and comfortable festival experience for us all.

Please contact for any further questions
