HOW TO MAKE A DAVID LYNCH FILM

Directors Lounge is special by all means, it has the great atmosphere of cinematic passion and brave underground film directors who have the guts to run simultaneously with the Berlinale. Oh mostly due to the great sense of humor. Check their homepage and watch the film called How to make a David Lynch film and you will understand what kind of directors we are talking about here.

How To Make A David Lynch Film was a true darling of the audience during The 8th Berlin International Directors Lounge.

Thus making it the perfect choice for the DL part of the short film mix at the
You Say Festival-We Say Party II, Thursday, 12. April, Naherholung Sternchen
If you join the fun, wait for the big screen, otherwise enjoy a young person´s guide on How To Make A David Lynch Film. The directors, Joe McClean and Sarju Patel, appreciate your opinion on twitter at RedandTan.

A “Lynchian” man and woman find a 1950’s style educational video that teaches them How To Make A David Lynch Film. While going through Lynch’s canon, they learn how to achieve long pauses for no reason, crazy music and sounds, stories with no plot, and how to confuse the shit out of their audience! HOW TO MAKE A DAVID LYNCH FILM is a parody that will bring Lynch lovers and haters together in comical harmonium!

This short was the runner up for 2 huge awards at Dances With Films 2011! The Grand Jury Prize and the brand new Industry Choice Award!

Directors Lounge 2010  |  Opening Party | Thurs. 20:00

Berlin’s art and media flâneurs lounge in a new art space at Pfefferberg, Berlin.

At the same time as Berlinale reaches their 60th year, Directors Lounge celebrates her 6th anniversary this February, in 2010. Starting off in 2005 as a spontaneous self-organized place for friends of experimental media arts and for stressed-out film ticket hunters, the small festival has grown to an international platform for exceptional film and media shows. Directors Lounge has presented artists and their works on fairs and exhibitions, features single artists in monthly screenings in Berlin and presents selected works on the web. However, the media art festival in February still is the very heart and core of Directors Lounge, and should not be missed.

As in the past years, for eleven days artist curators from around the world present their selected programs. There is a multitude of highlights to be discovered, special programs, music programs, and of course, you will find a relaxed lounge ambience during the days of film vibes in Berlin. Here, you will meet filmmakers and artists in person. And without stressing for tickets, you will always find something special, apart from the ordinary or marvellous.

It seems merely impossible to give a concise of the upcoming program, however certain stars on the Directors Lounge firmament become clearly visible. Coming up is a monographic programme of Jean-Gabriel Périot, the acknowledged French moralist and film essayist, who was with the festival from its start. Telemach Wiesinger and Andreas Gogol, among others, will present a 16mm film live-performance. There will be specially curated screenings from Russia, Argentina, Finland and Australia. Two themes seem to lure throughout the whole festival programs including the main selection: First, there is the gaze of the flâneur, the point of view of the stroller or the urban explorer, presented in the Urban Research program, and lingering in many other selections. Second, you will find connections between poetry, poetic film and music film, a theme taken up by such programs as the selections from Zebra Poetry Award and Literaturwerkstatt Berlin, the Festival de VideoPoesia from Argentina and the MUSEEK film program selected by Tour de Film from St. Petersburg.
In any case, the daily screenings from 6pm through late night  which will be announced just in time, as it has been a festival tradition  will serve best eye- and ear candies  for the spontaneous film flâneurs as much as for the connoisseurs of experimental delicatessen.

A warm hearted welcome!
