Perhaps more famous for its historic architecture and cultural attractions, Berlin, Germany, has a vibrant independent cinema scene. Every year, amateur directors and other filmmakers around the city gather in celebration of creative talent at the Achtung Berlin festival. This year's event takes place from April 18-25 at various cinemas. A car hire in Germany
is a great way for visitors taking a motoring holiday in the country to see another side of this fascinating destination.
The festival screens films of varying durations and genres, from feature-length dramas to short films, hour-long documentaries to 15-minute internet videos. The New Berlin Film Award is a major part of the event and invites filmmakers from the city to submit their films to be judged in the competition.
Achtung Berlin also features a number of medium-length movies, according to the official website. These films offer attendees the focus and intensity of short films with room for the creative exploration and character development of longer movies. This year's event will feature a number of films centred around themes of sustainability and social responsibility.
A must-see for fans of challenging cinema, Achtung Berlin is a great way to learn more about German culture and society. Visitors can take a car hire in Berlin
to reach the cinemas participating in the festival.
