, unveiled in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, is a finalist for the LUX Prize 2017. The work of the wonderful, internationally renowned Viennese actor Christoph Waltz is celebrated in the Tribute section of the festival, and the annual Homage will of course be dedicated to the long-standing director of the Viennale, Hans Hurch, who sadly passed away this year, having channelled years of passion and commitment into creating a genuine celebration of cinema, with no golden statues, no attendee hierarchies, no sponsor logos appearing on screens, no red carpets or photo calls, but which never fails to attract a great number of stars, such as those above, and many, many more.
