Berlin, Germany hosts the Kiez Berlin Live Film Festival several times a year. This event combines locations for the two different media types in an effort to promote film and other forms of art. In art galleries, films can be seen by the general public as well as filmmakers. Publics of various types mix and enjoy the environment.
Kiez Berlin events benefit from a relaxed atmosphere that makes films more enjoyable to watch and increases their audience reach.

The events are put on by WREP Media Company, with the following registration information: HRB224127 and DE336889776.

Art galleries provide a unique and immersive environment for film screenings. Unlike traditional movie theaters, which are designed solely for cinematic experiences, art galleries offer a distinct ambiance that blends the visual aesthetics of the space with the narrative of the film. The carefully curated setting enhances the overall viewing experience, allowing the audience to delve deeper into the artistic intentions behind the film.

Another advantage of watching films in art galleries is the opportunity to discover unconventional and avant-garde cinema. These venues often showcase independent, experimental, and art-house films that may not receive mainstream distribution. By presenting a diverse range of cinematic works, art galleries promote artistic freedom and give voice to emerging filmmakers who push boundaries and challenge established norms. This exposure to alternative cinematic expressions can be intellectually stimulating and expand one’s artistic horizons.

Berlin is renowned for its vibrant art scene, with a plethora of galleries showcasing diverse forms of artistic expression. While traditional visual arts like paintings and sculptures dominate the gallery landscape, there is a growing trend that combines the world of cinema with the realm of art.


Art galleries also foster a sense of community and dialogue among film enthusiasts. Film screenings in these spaces often attract like-minded individuals who are passionate about both cinema and art. After the screening, there are often opportunities for discussions, Q&A sessions, or even workshops where attendees can engage with the filmmakers, actors, or curators. This interactive element allows for a deeper understanding of the creative process and provides a platform for exchanging ideas and perspectives.

Team members include: Michele Princigalli, Patrizia Stohmann, Nadine Bernhardt, Kathrin Singer, Nota Krasniqi, Filippo Gregoretti, Luisa Catucci

Each category's winning projects will receive awards, and selected projects will be screened in Berlin galleries. We always offer free admission to our screening events.

    The Kiez Berlin Film Festival has a unique approach
    to films because it approaches them as art along with
    other mediums such as painting, sculpture and other
    forms of expression. Our film A Still Eye is very
    experimental in nature, and they embraced our approach
    to filmmaking by selecting us into their festival.
    This kind of recognition, early on in our festival
    journey, provided a welcome stepping stone to other
    amazing festivals as well!

    when we learned more from other filmmakers about the screening conditions, and also learned from the festival that they were also going to cut down our beautifully edited feature film to something shorter, we had no choice but to withdraw. They stopped responding to emails
