COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH

Cinema of the Future
with ANCB Research Partner Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg

since 2010


A project instigating a continuous debate about independent arthouse cinemas and their role in public urban space

BACKGROUND AND AIMS
Berlin is Germany's cinema capital with its large variety of different programmes and events, in particular the International Film Festival Berlin. Yet there are numerous challenges facing the city's cinema landscape today. The project Cinema of the Future aims at initiating a continuous debate on the subject of cinema in public urban space, by exploring on-the-ground situations in Berlin through architecture design studios informed by specialist input talks and debates as well as by evaluating and publicly presenting the outcomes. After examining the role of the cinema in the future urban public space of the city by exploring urban-architectural opportunities in 2010, and expanded socio-cultural and socio-economic programmes in 2011, Cinema of the Future 2012 focused on the future of the independent arthouse cinema as a critical element of the city's cultural offering using the Eiszeit Cinema in Berlin-Kreuzberg as a case study. Cinema of the Future 2013 was the fourth event in this ANCB series. Its focus was on how the cinema, as a local meeting spot, can act as a catalyst for cohesive social change, using the Rollberg Cinema in Berlin-Neukölln as a case study.
