To where tradition rubs shoulders with zeitgeist, and where great art and inspiration jumps you at every street corner! This Culture Fox program takes you to Berlin and Leipzig for a 6-day experience of the independent cinema culture of Germany and beyond.

Berlin enjoys a long film history, tracing right back to the beginnings of moving pictures. And, in the last 20 years, Berlin has enjoyed a renaissance as a film city, establishing itself as an important producer as well as location for films that have captured this particular spirit of life in the city.

20 lucky filmmakers and film enthusiasts will get to get tread on a cinematic trail, discovering treasure troves and a frame by frame insight into the European film scene. The program rests on two intense workshops and an insider’s look at an international film festival!
