Our afterparty DJ: RJ Thyme

American writer and musician RJ Thyme explores a path of storytelling within experimental music. His live audio-visual performances take the listener on a journey – one that is not always comfortable, or fun, but deeply emotional. Since 2015, he has been a member of the Perfect Entropy/GLITCH label.


Zeughofstraße 20, 10997 Berlin


Let’s Talk Films!

The BSFF 2018 season will include a series of workshops, panel discussions and networking opportunities to inspire and encourage ongoing dialogue and ideas about films. We hope to provide BSFF sponsors, media companies, artists and filmmakers with positive avenues to interact with film aficionados and aspiring filmmakers, paving the way for the next generation of filmmakers to take the stage.

Stay tuned for more.
