Berlinale Goes Open Air: Programme Online / Ticket Sales Start on June 3 / Limited Number of Free Tickets for Nurses and Doctors from Berlin Hospitals

Outdoor cinema Hasenheide in the summer of 2021

Good news for film fans: From June 15 to 29, the Berlinale will present festival highlights from the February programme in a summery outdoor atmosphere (see also the May 16 press release).

In cooperation with five Berlin outdoor cinemas and the films’ distributors, films from various Berlinale sections will be shown over the course of 15 evenings. Berlinale Goes Open Air combines the tradition of the Summer Berlinale (since 2003) with the concept for Berlinale Goes Kiez, an audience favourite.

The films will be introduced by the festival directors or the Berlinale section heads. Guests from film teams will also attend some screenings.
Tickets go on sale on June 3 and can be purchased via the website of the respective outdoor cinema.
Local nurses and doctors are invited to attend Berlinale Goes Open Air screenings free of charge as a gesture of gratitude for their tireless work during the pandemic, an initiative suggested by Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media Claudia Roth. The festival is currently in contact with Berlin hospitals to collect orders for the limited number of reserved tickets.

The 2022 Berlinale took place in February as an on-site event despite the challenges of the pandemic. The festival’s success was a positive sign for the film industry and an encouraging one for all culture fans.
Berlinale Goes Open Air aims to once again promote awareness of the films and of the cinema as a community-building place, as well as to support German film distributors and cinemas in their work towards creating a vibrant film culture and connecting to a wide audience.

Radioeins (rbb) - the Berlinale Radio will cover Berlinale Goes Open Air.

The Berlinale Goes Open Air poster has been on display in the city since Monday, May 30, inspiring anticipation for a trip to the movies.

The Berlinale is very grateful to the BKM and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg for their financial support of Berlinale Goes Open Air, without which the project would not be possible.
