Description

This year’s festival will take place at Kino Central, an open air, art-house cinema located in the artistic grounds of Hackescher Markt adjacent to the funky individualistic bar, Eschschloraque Rümschrümp, where we will hold the Afterparty on June 27. BSFF 2018 will feature thought-provoking talks by industry experts, screenings of shortlisted films, award ceremony and afterparty, masterclasses, panel discussions and immersive tech demos BSFF-style.

We will start with a panel discussion exploring the historical evolution of filmmaking—from old-school movie productions using actual film, to our current digital 'point and shoot' age. This will be followed by a screening of some of the best film submissions of the year, and an afterparty with a DJ, featuring immersive experiences via VR, AR & 360° tech, a photobooth to capture special moments, social speed dating, and more.

20:00-20:45

Panel Discussion - Filmmaking through the Ages: From Film to Digital, TV to Online Streaming

  • Ygor Gama - Film Director & New Media Artist

  • Temi Hollist - Storyteller

Going to the cinema used to be an exciting way to spend an evening, and we were more than happy to watch a single episode of a TV series a week. All that changed with the arrival of on-demand video platforms such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video. Not only did that enable us to stream movies and TV programmes 24/7, with better access to quality independent productions, but Netflix also ushered in the age of binge-watching, effectively feeding our insatiable appetites for video content.

Meanwhile, Instagram stories have created a whole new format of short videos through which users share animated snippets of their day, hold interactive polls, promote content, products and services, and more.

The filmmaking landscape has transformed drastically, and will continue to do so in light of immersive technologies such as VR and AR paving the way for the next cultural shift. What does that mean for our next generation of filmmakers, and how do we make the most of these technological innovations? Add your voice to the mix by joining our talk and discussion.

20:45-22:00

  • Animation
  • Documentary
