Berlin: Eight Festival Films Getting Online Screenings Within Germany
The offer, which includes seven documentaries and costs $3.75 per film, is designed to "reach Berlinale fans who are unable to attend the festival in person."
The Berlin film festival is for the first time offering a selection of films via online screenings within Germany.
The eight films, including seven documentaries, are from the festival's Panorama, Forum, Generation
and Perspektive Deutsches Kino sections. Each will be available from the day after their respective Berlinale premieres until Feb. 28.
Each screening will be limited to 300 "virtual seats" and cost 3 euros ($3.75), or 2 euros ($2.50) for people who order five or more screenings.
"This joint project with the platform Festival Scope is intended to reach Berlinale fans who are unable to attend the festival in person," the Berlin fest said. "The special festival programming offer serves to acknowledge the interest in the festival that exists far beyond the city limits of Berlin."
Several smaller film festivals have started offering movies online.
