Berlinale 2018.  Various locations.
The Berlinale International Film Festival is one of the biggest film festivals in Europe and everyone who’s anyone on the film scene wants to be on the red carpet. But what’s great is that most screenings of films in the program are open to the general public. You have to be quick though. Either sort it out online when the program is announced or line up early at the box office to get tickets. It’s all part of the thrill of the Berlinale.
Running Feb 15 -24, check out the event here.

Berlin 1937 – In the shadow of tomorrow.
Berlin 1937 is a multimedia exhibition surrounding the events in Berlin in 1937. The Märkishes Museum houses a collection of unique, never-before-displayed original objects, historical photos, documents, sound recordings and film excerpts demonstrates the deceptive normality under the Nazi regime.
