Let’s face the fact, February in Berlin is really big by all means, the shortest month with the most important happenings.
You have the biggest digital art Festival in Europe – Transmediale with tons of special events and important guests from all over the world, and you have the most important Film Festival in Germany – Berlinale which equals Cannes Festival in France. But let’s forget about Berlinale for a second because it is not the worldwide famous actors we artists in Berlin are for – it’s the art which is initially made for art’s sake and not the money.
And real artists are always the most generous ones! Directors Lounge is a Film Festival taking a place in Berlin, also in February, which lasts for wonderful 11 days and is for free (this year admission free BEFORE 8pm) before 10pm. It offers everything from professional art feature films and documentaries to experimental music clips and avant-garde short films. They also provide music events, which makes it even more fun. And of course special guests!
This Festival has an absolutely special atmosphere, organised by special people and who make an absolutely special film selection. You feel warm and cosy and can literally live there for 11 days! DL has an absolutely unique feeling! It’s like entering the bubble of extravaganza which floats in the air full of flying toads.
DL about themselves:
“A truly one-off Berliner film-and-more experience. No sides drawn up – filmmaker and film-goer thrown together. No red carpet, but a yellow brick road into Wonder City.
This is more than simply a festival, more than simply a lounge.”
