Berlinale Goes Kiez: The Programme

From February 9 to 15, Berlinale Goes Kiez will bring the festival to local arthouse cinemas for the tenth time. In 2019, all sections and special presentations of the Berlinale will present screenings in neighbourhoods across the city. They will include seven titles from the Competition; and, on February 14, a programme on love from Berlinale Shorts; and from the Retrospective, two of Helke Misselwitz’s documentaries, one of which was shot in the immediate vicinity of Lichtblick-Kino. On the final day of Berlinale Goes Kiez, further highlights will be presented by Culinary Cinema: the documentary The Biggest Little Farm (followed by a menu at “Gourmanderie” restaurant); and by the Homage: Il portiere di notte (The Night Porter) in honour of Charlotte Rampling. A total of six short and seventeen full-length films, as well the first two episodes of the Austrian series M – Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder (M – A City Hunts a Murderer) will be shown.
The film programme will be supplemented by an open round of talks hosted by Berlinale Talents. Titled “Battle for the Big Screen: Future of Cinema”, international experts will discuss new perspectives of cinema in the age of streaming; admission is free.

Berlinale Goes Kiez gives the public a chance to see a selection of Berlinale films at their “own” neighbourhood cinemas, and to engage in direct exchanges with the invited film teams. At every event, guests are to be on hand to introduce the films and/or discuss them after the screenings.

Starting February 4, tickets for regular screenings will be available at all Berlinale ticket counters and at the respective neighbourhood cinemas.
