The Film festival achtung berlin – new berlin film award presents an entire week full of fresh new movies from the capital: from April 13 to April 20, 2016 over 80 full-length, medium-length, short films and documentaries can be watched on the big screens. All films have been produced and shot in Berlin-Brandenburg.
The Competition Made in Berlin-Brandenburg is the heart of the festival and showcases the most exciting films of this season – including award-winning feature films, political documentaries and (cutting-edge) short films. All films will be presented as first releases, German or Berlin premieres with attendance of the film crew and cast. The brand new section Berlin Coproductions gives international film productions in partnership with Berlin-Brandenburg a new platform to present their work. The film sections Highlights and Documents offer a broad place for new creative talents and strong topics – from ‘Kiezdoku’ (documentaries from the ‘hoods’ of Berlin) to Genre-Thrillers. The section Retrospective “Berlin in Fashion” invites movie fans to follow the history of Berlin’s Fashion in the 20th Century at the ‚Bundesplatz’ Cinema in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.
Exciting workshops, panel discussions and film parties provide a platform and networking space for the young creative Berlin film scene to exchange their ideas.
The Berlin based label Darling Berlin is a sponsoring partner as well as the price donor for the best actress and actor this year. Furthermore, the digital motion pictures aggregator daredo distribution, based in Frankfurt and Mannheim, is responsible for the achtung berlin YouTube channel.
