As one of the Lomography-Britspotting competition winners I took the chance and drove to Berlin, to spend a weekend with films.
It was a WOW-feeling. Winning the first prize of Britspotting- competition what meant not only going to Berlin an entire weekend, but having one of my shots as poster!
I was amazed, so was Danika who is on that shot.
As winner of two cards, I asked a friend from Berlin who is studying with me in Brunswick to join me and we made our way there.
It is a nice little cinema, the Babylon directly in Berlin Mitte next to Volksbühne at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. You can even see Funkturm quite close.
Going to the cinema we met lots of people (with Fleur I have been in contact earlier wave) who organized the british-irish-filmfestival. We talked to them and saw the posters everywhere. THe shot was on the programmes, too and was projected on a wall, so the picture of Danilka was way bigger than her.
THe opening film (In The Loop) was veeeeery good and afterwards was a party where the other shots where displayed (you can see some of them on the doubles).
The next day we have been to the filmcafé, too where we had a delicious soup and could see all winning images again.
It was nice weekend with films, talking and hearing english and nice people.
Thanks again, LSI and Britspotting team!
Going back to Berlin two weeks later, I found a poster over the Britspotting-poster and had to take a picture of it… Time goes by….
