Note on the Mask and Test Requirements

Even if the Corona situation in Berlin is improving, the Berlinale and all its visitors must adhere to the applicable protection and hygiene policy, which cannot be loosened. The Summer Special has only been made possible as a pilot project of the Berlin Senate, therefore the rules are valid until the end of the festival and are not negotiable. Visitors without the required documents must be denied access to the venues by the festival.
Please check the Berlinale's protection and hygiene policy, which is mandatory for all Summer Special screenings, before visiting the festival.
