British Shorts Summer Edition at Berlin

Britische Kurzfilme im Freiluftkino Insel im Cassiopeia, Berlin-Friedrichshain.

Bevor wir am nächsten Wochenende, den 3.- 4. August 2019, in einem mondänen Strandhotel an der Ostsee Urlaub machen, wollen wir nicht versäumen, auf aktuelle und recht schräge Film-Veranstaltungen in Berlin aufmerksam zu machen.

Beliebt sind derzeit, bei dem warmen Sommerwetter in Berlin, Open-Air-Filmvorführungen in diversen Freilichtkinos. Auch bei Starkregen harren viele Zuschauer unter mitgebrachten Regenschirmen weiter aus, um das Ende der Filme hautnass zu erleben.

Die High Society, die normalerweise bei Berliner Filmfestivals anzutreffen ist, bleibt dem nassen Spektakel jedoch meist fern, obwohl wir mit den imposanten »British Shorts« an another fabulous Lichtspielklub short film festival outdoor adventure ankündigen können.

Das letzte Event fand im Mai 2019 with the 40th Anniversary Screening at Freiluftkino Insel im Cassiopeia statt, jenem Hot Spot, vor dem in Berlin die Party und Club-Gänger gewarnt werden, dass vielleicht fliegende Händler nicht nur Salzbrezeln, sondern eventuell auch berauschendes Dope anbieten könnten.

Aber vielleicht ist dies gar keine so schlechte Alternative, um aufgeheitert lustige Filmchen aus dem Brexit Universum sehen zu können. Auch die diesjährige British Shorts Summer Edition 2019 in Berlin wird wieder im favourite outdoor cinema Freiluftkino Insel im Cassiopeia stattfinden und zwar am:

Fri 2nd August 2019, 9pm
