Cinema of the Future 2013
Cinematic Acupuncture. The Cinema as Social and Creative Catalyst

Saturday, 19 April 2013

An initiative by ANCB The Metropolitan Laboratory, supported by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and in cooperation with the project 'Berlinale goes Kiez' by the 63rd International Film Festival Berlin.

Part I  Presentations

Part II  Discussions

Cinema of the Future 2013 is the fourth event in this ANCB series. This year's focus is 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.

The symposium presented an interdisciplinary dialogue about the role of the cinema as a social stimulator. Local agents joined specialists from different fields to debate the position of cinema in urban public space with regards to questions such as: How can the cinema reach out to a diverse range of inhabitants in a fast changing social landscape? How might the effects of a design intervention on the cinema radiate across the whole neighbourhood?
