Meeting Place: Kulturforum 

8pm-2am  Long Night Summer Cinema during the Long Night 2015

The piazza in front of the Kulturforum museums will be transformed for the Long Night into an open air cinema. Lie back in a deckchair and look over Potsdamer Platz while enjoying, amongst others, two film premieres. At 9pm we'll be showing the premiere of the ARTE documentary 'Botticelli', which will spur your interest in the upcoming exhibition at the Gemäldegalerie; at 11pm Ilja Richter will be personally presenting his film 'Hotel Bogota', telling the 100 year history of a very special Berlin house. The new Berlin film award, achtung berlin, will also be presenting new German films, short film highlights and last year's prizewinners (programme on the way). The Long Night Summer Cinema is the conclusion of this year's Summer Cinema Kulturforum by the Yorck cinema group.
