Pontypool is a cult 2008 Canadian horror film directed by Bruce McDonald and written by Tony Burgess, based on his novel Pontypool Changes Everything. This film is largely considered the best horror film to ever come out of Canada.

Sunset Kino is a programme of film screenings in the outdoor cinema pavilion adjacent to the Salzburger Kunstverein. This program runs July 12th to August 23rd on every Wednesday evening at 9 pm. From contemporary horror feature films to short, experimental videos, the focus is on contemporary art and avant-garde cinema with the theme “I am not who I was not.”

Introduced by the invited curator, screenings are about 90 minutes. Picnic tables and a bar are on-site. People can bring or acquire food from Café Cult. Free entry.
