Screenings, Panel Discussion & Afterparty

This June 27, join us at Open-Air Kino Central for an exciting line-up of activities to kick off BSFF 2018! 

We will start with a panel discussion exploring the historical evolution of filmmaking—from old school movie productions using actual film, to our current digital 'point and shoot' age. This will be followed by a screening of some of the best film submissions of the year, and an afterparty with a DJ, featuring immersive experiences via VR, AR & 360° tech, a photobooth to capture special moments, social speed dating, and more.
