For those who were disappointed with the Oscar nominations or the Golden Globes this year, do not despair. If you prefer a more indie setting for your film award ceremonies, Berlin hosts the yearly Berlin International Film Festival 2016. For a 10 day spectacle.
Whilst filmmakers pray that their film wins the acclaimed Golden Bear prize at The Berlin Film Festival, those visiting can sit back, relax and enjoy the films from the 11th to the 21st of February. Tickets start from only four euros to 95 euros. And there is something for everyone with over 400 films to choose from.
BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2016 : HAIL CAESAR
On the 11th February 2016, ‘Hail, Caesar!’ by Academy Award winning director duo Joel and Ethan Coen will open the Berlinale. Featuring a stellar cast with George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton and Jonah Hill.
When you are not watching films, Berlin has a lot to offer, with plenty to see and do. The remains of the Berlin Wall will take you back to 1961-1989. With men dressed authentically, guiding you through its history.
A THEMED VISIT
The Berlin Film Museum, one of the greatest museums in Europe, shows the world a time when Berlin was at the forefront of cinema. With extraordinary artefacts, scripts, and old clips, the Berlin Film Museum will keep you occupied for hours.
Pubs and cafes are plenty in Berlin, and offer every drink (and a lot bigger than you expected) that you can think of. If you are a stranger to beer, then Berlin is the best place to try it. With an eclectic choice of nightlife hotspots, that offer entertainment such as dancers, multiple rooms with music from all over the world and even conga lines, Berlin knows how to throw a good party.
