Berlinale goes Kiez und U inn Berlin Hostel goes Berlinale

Berlinale in Berlin Friedrichshain

U inn Berlin Hostel Friedrichshain BerlinaleWie jedes Jahr im Winter wird Berlin wieder Kulturschauplatz von ungebrochener Anziehungskraft. Die Berlinale ist das größte Kulturereignis der Stadt und eines der wichtigsten Events der internationalen Filmindustrie. Fachbesucher und Journalisten aus 128 Ländern sind jedes Jahr zu Gast in Berlin. Fast 300.000 verkaufte Karten zeigen aber auch das der Berliner dieses Ereignis zu schätzen weiß. Berlin ist wohl bekannt für Kunst, Glamour und Party, Aber zur Berlinale bekommt Berlin nochmal ein wenig extra Glitzerstaub ins Gesicht gepustet.
Dieses Jahr stehen über 400 Filme in den Kategorien Independent und Arthouse, Generation, Perspektive Deutsches Kino und Berlinale Shots zur Wahl. Da wird es nicht einfach werden den Überblick zu halten. Auf der Seite der Berlinale kann man sich aber schon mal seine Favoriten zusammen suchen.

Berlinale Talent Campus

Jedes Jahr eine Besonderheit ist der Berlinale Talent Campus, der während des Filmfestivals stattfindet und durch viele Partner aus der Filmindustrie getragen wird. Rund 350 frische Filmtalente werden nach Berlin eingeladen um zusammen mit Persönlichkeiten aus dem Filmbusiness an Workshops und Diskussionen teil zu nehmen. Das Zentrum der 61.Berlinale wird wieder der Potsdamer Platz sein. Dieses Jahr kann man aber auch in den kleinen Underground Kinos von Berlin das große Kino erleben. “Berlinale goes Kiez” heißt das Experiment bei dem Berlinale Filme in kleinen Kiez Kinos in Kreuzberg, Weißensee, Neukölln und Charlottenburg gezeigt werden. Wir freuen uns auch dieses Jahr im U inn Berlin Hostel Berlinale Gäste zu begrüßen. Der Weg zu den Berlinale Kinos ist es nicht weit. Und zu zu dem Berlinale Partys noch viel kürzer.  Die Berlinale findet 2011 vom 10.02 bis 20.02 statt.

Another special highlight is the Modeselektion night scheduled for Saturday, 5.2 in Maria am Ostbahnhof, compiled by Berlin’s own home-grown heroes of the bass line, Modeselektor, who invited along some of their talented cronies: the video collective Pfadfinderei, Jackmaster, Ben UFO, Cosmin TRG and Siriusmo. Other highlights include a Perlon night at Panorama Bar, club concerts by Swedish techno-minimalists The Field, French duo Zombie Zombie, and the young Cologne trio, MIT, who fuse Kraftwerk-inspired conceptual electronica with the cold wave aesthetics of Joy Division – and will present their latest album at the festival.
