Festival runs at the Babylon cinema on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Mitte from Feb 8-18.


The Berlin Independent Film Festival has unveiled the lineup for its second edition.

Taking place at the Babylon cinema on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Mitte, the 17-strong feature lineup includes Eddie Mullins’ Doomsdays, Ricky Rijneke’s Silent Ones, Tali Barde’s For No Eyes Only and Andrew McGeary’s The Warehouse.

The festival will also feature a shorts lineup, with the shorts screened in blocks between features, as well as a music video showcase on Feb 17.

Running at the same time as the Berlinale but not associated with it, the festival aims to provide a showcase for indie films with an emphasis on new film-makers, as well as developing into a crucial business hub for the low-budget film industry.

Last year’s edition saw prizes awarded to the likes of Paul Schoolman’s StringCaesar and Mark Jarrett’s The Taiwan Oyster for Low-Budget Feature and Micro-Budget Feature, respectively.
