Achtung Berlin to feature new media

Teuton film fest to launch Media Showcase Berlin-Brandenburg

Now in its sophomore year, the Achtung Berlin/New Berlin Film Award fest, which features pics from and about Berlin and Brandenburg, is launching the Media Showcase Berlin-Brandenburg.

Attendees at the event will be able to keep abreast of trends and projects in games, mobile entertainment, video-blogging and spatial media.

Under the slogan “Show and Discover!,” the fest’s Ideas Laboratory will provide a platform for snap lectures by experts in various fields as well as project presentations.

The Media Lounge will let visitors try out the various projects, play games, wander through media installations, view mobisodes at length and navigate through videoblogs.

In the Booklounge, people can do it the old-fashioned way by leafing through printed literature.

The Showcase runs alongside the film festival May 13-14 at the Hackesche Hoefe cinema. Event, held in partnership with communication agency New Thinking Communications, is supported by the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Berlin’s Capital Culture Fund and the Defa-Foundation.
