No Ice or Snow: The Berlinale Outdoors in Summer!

At the 8th Summer Berlinale from July 16 to 19, the Open Air Cinema in Friedrichshain is presenting - in collaboration with radioeins - five highlights from the 60th Berlin International Film Festival's programme. These films have yet to be released in German movie theatres.


Besides Bal (Honey), winner of this year's Golden Bear, three audience favourites will be shown from the Panorama, Forum and Perspektive Deutsches Kino sections. Festival Director Dieter Kosslick will open the Summer Berlinale, and heads of the Berlinale sections Wieland Speck, Christoph Terhechte and Linda Söffker as well as programme manager Thomas Hailer will present the films.

Berlinale Perspektive Deutsches Kino: Renn, wenn Du kannst (Run If You Can), Germany 2009; director: Dietrich Brüggemann, 112 min. Presented by Linda Söffker, head of the Perspektive Deutsches Kino.

Ben is intelligent, witty and tied to a wheelchair. He and his new carer, who is doing community service instead of the military, get to know Annika, a cellist. The three become friends - but then the two boys both fall in love with the girl. What began as a game turns for Ben into a journey to his deepest fears.
