Bicycle cinema in the city, lay-down cinema in the countryside or floating cinema on the Spree – we are returning to our roots by organizing open air cinema with all the trimmings – and of course (as always) for free.
Each event has its own theme, in the city it’s about energy & mobility, in the countryside about deceleration & nature and on the river about water as a resource and habitat. The event starts with an interactive guided tour to the venue – by bike, canoe or on foot through woods and meadows in and around Berlin. The evening program illuminates each theme through artistic performances and ends with an open-air cinema under the stars.
With this project, we aim to make a contribution to the sustainability debate by inviting participants to explore new perspectives on these much-discussed topics through creativity and art.

In spring, we got people off the couch by joining our Couch Potato Challenge! There was again the opportunity to work from home on a collective stop-motion animation film with teams from all over the world. Everyone could take part, without any prior knowledge! The films will be shown as previews in the open-air cinema at the events.
Higher, faster, further? – energy & mobility
we will experience via our bicycle cinema.
At the energy self-sufficient cinema, 10 bicycles are used to pedal electricity for the cinema. The audience can take turns and is also invited to bring their own bikes.
Less is more – deceleration & nature
we will try out our lay-down cinema. The screen hangs high up in the trees and the audience lies on mattresses or hammocks with a view of the sky and the canopy.
Everything flows – water as a resource & natural habitat
We will dive into this via a floating cinema. The screen is on land and the audience sways in boats on the river in front of the films.
Dates and more on the programme will follow soon!
