Film Festival 2018 at the Vienna City Hall

Dropped in August 17, 2018 with 0 Comments

I should’ve posted this much earlier but I wasn’t really in the mood due to recent happenings which will be mentioned another time. At any rate, YES! I went to another event this week with my best friend. For some reason did I become more active with exploring the city I’ve been born in ever since I called in sick at work due to my back.

On a side note: I have scoliosis. It’s not fatal, so there’s not much to worry about. My back just hurts from time to time, but allover am I alright and just need to exercise on a daily basis to strengthen my back muscles as well as going to physical therapy. No surgery, no brace, just exercise.

Moving on, as it’s a rather big and annual event, we did expect for a lot of people to come, especially since that day’s program was the opera to Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod, and we weren’t wrong. There were at least 1000+ visitors, tourists included—although there weren’t many of them.

I admit, I loved it. Haha. Especially since different food stalls offered all sorts of foods and drinks at the back as well as how they decorated everything to give it a more pleasing, relaxing but also romantic vibe. Out of all Viennese events I ever attended, this was by far my most favorite. Not that I dislike Christmas or Easter, but the Summer Film Festival does have its very own kind of magic. Although, I am not one to judge as I am only starting to visit all sorts of events happening around in Vienna.

What to expect from YuniCon 2018?

Yesterday I went to a rather small anime/gaming convention which is probably not all too well known in Austria or Vienna. It was my first time attending it and to be very honest, I expected so much more—which was obviously not right since it was the first time ever YuniCon has been hosted.

I admit, I was disappointed, but I should’ve expected it from such a small con. On the other hand, they used the event venue where Austria’s biggest anime/manga convention, AniNite, took place back then (Multiversum Schwechat) so…I wasn’t completely at fault to have had such high expectations.

Moving on; even though it was a rather small convention, my best friend, younger brother and me surprisingly had our share of fun in some way. On a side note, I fell in love with their mascot.
