Announcing Directors Lounge Berlin 2008

The fourth Directors Lounge Berlin will take place from 7. - 17. february, at the time of the 58th Berlin International Festival, in the very heart of Berlin, the famous traditional shopping street Friedrichstrasse.
The Venue, centrally located in first floor of Nr 112A opened its doors exactly 100 years ago as one of Berlin´s first cinemas. A popular attraction for more than 50 years. Except for a seven year revitalisation as the Scala after reunification it remained closed since 1962.

Starting with our annual festivity alongside the Berlinale this cinematic gem will come back as a place for the Silverscreen. Hand in hand with our friends Scala e.V. are we going to fill our new home with all kinds of cinematic tidbits, marvels and music. A club, a cinema, a dance hall and everything inbetween. A cornutopia where movies have been loved since 100 years.

• Expect video art and experimental film from all flavors and parts of the world. Several curated programs, specials, accompanied by DJs and VJs ensure ten cosmopolitan days and nights..
Once again we will offer a hideaway, a relaxed space for filmmakers, videoartists and everybody interested in experimental forms of cinema and videoart.

• The screenings are followed by nights of music and specials. The Lounge as a club, the spot to dance the night away.

• Proposals are still welcome. Interested parties should get in touch within this year.

• As the name suggests – Directors Lounge will always be a meetingpoint, a place to have a drink and to lounge around with other friendly lizards



Directors Lounge organize screenings of short, experimental works from many different genres.We invite artists, curators, critics to specific discussions and lectures.
Special screenings feature highlights of experimental cinema, explore new trends in video-art and emphasize the role of independent filmmaking in culturspecific enviroments.
Directors Lounge is not in any way associated with The Berlin International Film Festival.
