Berlinale in the open air: In the exceptional year of 2021, the Berlinale will show films at 16 outdoor venues in a specially made open-air cinema at Museum Island, in outdoor versions of “Kiez-Kino” local screenings and in the middle of the Tiergarten in HKW’s Westgarten.

At HKW, the festival sections Forum and Forum Expanded will show international cinema productions of feature films, documentaries and short film programs that often deal with intense crises. They are about encounters with a murderer, the life of an activist, a dementia patient on a Caribbean island, but also about the cathartic confrontation of a film director with her situation as a non-German in Berlin or a crash course in Black resistance.

With films by Ephraim Asili, Cynthia Beatt, Christophe Cognet, Fabrizio Ferraro, Salomé Jashi, Prapat Jiwarangsan, PolakVanBekkum, Petna Ndaliko Katondolo, Jonna Kina, Angelika Levi, Vincent Meessen, Avi Mograbi, Susana Nobre, Moumouni Sanou, Kerstin Schroedinger, Moritz Siebert, Anocha Suwichakornpong, Emily Wardill, Chris Wright & Stefan Kolbe
