Every season, the museum presents a series of documentaries and feature films that engage with central themes of the art on display. These films are selected by the curatorial staff, and shed light on the deeper motivations of artists, give insight into the time period, or demonstrate the ongoing influence of turn-of-the-century art and thought on today's culture. Films are presented free of charge on Mondays at 4 p.m. in Café Fledermaus.

Egon Schiele was a master of portraiture. This series celebrates cinematic takes on the subject, with a focus on literary adaptations.
