Twist at the 10th Berlin International Directors Lounge [DLX]
8:30pm | space A
Directors Lounge started in 2005 as an experiment – a relaxed space for filmmakers, video artists and everybody interested in experimental forms of cinema and video art, during The Berlin International Film Festival. Directors Lounge filled a gap, literally, in the urban space by taking over abandoned places; in the broader sense, by offering a new way to encounter film in a much more convivial way than on the traditional festival circuit. By emphasizing the dialogue between the makers and the audience, we triggered a whole new way to present media art, and soon Directors Lounge became a hideaway, a meeting point and also a starting point for new creative collaborations. The overwhelming response from both the public and the artists encouraged us to continue Directors Lounge not only as an annual event but as a continuous platform for film and media art.
