THE SHOCK OF THE REAL - SCREENINGS AND SYMPOSION FILMMAKERS IN DIALOGUE
Screenwork starts off from questions on reality and truth. Looking on forms, genres and perspectives is the focus within the 50th anniversary events of the DFFB this march. Shorts, feature films and documentaries of the academy’s former students will be presented, knowing it can only be a selection of thousands of films being produced in 50 years.
Some films identify political, social and topographical progress within the city of Berlin. For its symposium DFFB is inviting filmmakers from the US, Europe and Germany to discuss their own approaches and tools of cinema and art to convey reality.
For decades the Deutsche Kinemathek, the Arsenal - Institut für Film und Videokunst e.V. and DFFB are closely bound. DFFB is very grateful for the support and contribution during the celebratory events.
We are grateful to the STIFTUNG DEUTSCHE KLASSENLOTTERIE BERLIN for providing financial support for the anniversary programme.
