And then there were nine. Directors Lounge, Number Nine. Nine years of genre-straddling slices of cinematic art and cuts of media experimentation, rearranged into viewable excursions into worlds new and challenging. As well, nine years of non-festival festival atmosphere, more circus than film space. With commingling of filmmakers and film-goers, without velvet barriers and cordoned-off areas for visiting visionaries. And with Number Nine on the way. This is the festival that provides the backdrop and erases the lines. Here, you can meet anyone. And exactly this is the concept. Directors Lounge presents first and foremost cutting edge cinematic visions, but is acutely aware that the atmosphere surrounding the screenings is a good part of our jag.
We invite all video artists and filmmakers to submit their works for next year's BERLIN INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORS LOUNGE[DL9]. THE 9th BERLIN INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORS LOUNGE, the annual festival for contemporary media and film alongside the 63nd Berlinale, will take place from 7 -17th of February, 2013 at the Naherholung Sternchen in Berlin.
Again we will be screening a broad selection of films from all parts of the world and of any genre (video art, experimental video, animation, short movie ...), covering a wide range of artistic positions in the new media. Details will be revealed over time on our website. Stay tuned for a fine collection of cinematic tidbits.
Now it´s your turn to submit your film for The 9th Berlin International Directors Lounge. We welcome single works, compilations, concepts, lectures, any kind of input.
