Campari is the iconic Italian red aperitif, at the heart of some of the world’s most famous cocktails such as the Negroni and Campari Spritz. Cinema reflects the perfect alchemy between the passion, creativity, and imagination of Campari, whose rich history in the world of arts and cinema dates from its very creation in 1860. Campari will host an exclusive bar in the Berlinale Press Center at the Grand Hyatt Hotel every day from 6:00pm. During the whole festival, guests can look forward to special Campari Experiences at more selected locations. The “Berlinale Bergfest”, co-hosted by Campari at Metropol on February 20 will be the highlight of the partnership between Campari and the Berlinale.
