35. Black International Cinema Berlin 2020

 

Sometimes Sunshine is unexpected and heartily Welcomed…

After waiting through April and August possibilities for the film festival location, because of the “Worm”, neither location date promises arose!

Oh well, pandemics bring about various forms of disappointment, unfortunately.
Lo and behold, ALEX – Open Channel Berlin rose to the occasion and kindly invited the 35th Black International Cinema Berlin 2020 to present our international and intercultural filmmakers artistry through their television station and streaming possibility from October 15-19, 2020 evenings and mornings.

In addition, on December 17, 2020, in cooperation with ALEX - Offener Kanal Berlin, we will produce a special festival edition of our intercultural magazine THE COLLEGIUM - Forum & Television Program Berlin live in the ALEX Berlin studio.

Unverhofft kommt Sonnenschein und ist Herzlich Willkommen...

Nachdem wir von April bis August auf eine Möglichkeit der Präsentation des Filmfestivals gewartet hatten, ließen sich aufgrund des „Wurms“ keine der beiden Terminaussichten verwirklichen!

Nun ja, Pandemien führen leider zu verschiedenen Formen der Enttäuschung.
Aber jetzt, siehe da! ALEX – Offener Kanal Berlin nahm die Gelegenheit war und lud das 35. Black International Cinema Berlin 2020 freundlicherweise ein, die Kunstwerke unserer internationalen und interkulturellen FilmemacherInnen vom 15. bis 19. Oktober in einem Abend- und Morgenprogramm via Fernsehen und Livestream zu präsentieren.

Darüber hinaus produzieren wir am 17. Dezember 2020 in Zusammenarbeit mit ALEX – Offener Kanal Berlin live im Fernsehstudio eine Sonder-Festivalausgabe unseres interkulturellen Magazins THE COLLEGIUM - Forum & Television Program Berlin.
