KIEZ Berlin is an annual live film festival in Berlin, Germany. It is organized by WREP Media Company, which is active in production, distribution, and rights management. WREP Media Company cooperates with various professionals in the fields of film, television, and the arts.

KIEZ Berlin live events take place in art galleries around Berlin, bringing together various artists and filmmakers. In addition to supporting local artists and galleries, this event increases public awareness of the featured films.

Our next festival event will take place at the Luisa Cartucci Gallery on the Allerstraße in Berlin-Neukölln as part of this year's edition.

During the annual festival, a selection of the monthly festival winners will be shown along with trailers, trailer clips, and short films.

With its location in Berlin's newly trend neighbourhood of Schillerkiez Neukölln, just a few meters away from the unique park of Tempelhofer Feld, Luisa Catucci Gallery is more than just an art gallery; it represents one of the basic elements of the area's cultural upheaval. In addition to exhibitions on ecological, social, and existential matters, the gallery also produces video art, sculpture, and photography.

Additionally to exhibitions, Luisa Catucci Gallery organizes a variety of events, combining art with talks, culture, and enjoyment, to support the vibrant spirit of the town and region.
