The program Spring Portraits groups together filmmakers who at times deal loosely with the theme of portraits - either of people, places, atmospheres, and who mostly also have, in some way, a connection to the city of Berlin. Some are long established names, others are making their first film - what is important is that they share some sensibility - and a belief in films power as a medium to transcend mere representation whilst simultaneously capturing something of life's fleeting moments.
After the success of the international symposium on current development in analogue film culture: “Film in the Present Tense”; LaborBerlin e.V. is proud to present the eighth edition of DIFFRAKTION, the annual showcase highlighting new works (including premiers!) by LaborBerlin members on Saturday, 10 February 2018.
