15 Berlin-based songwriters present their independent music videos on the big screen. Each video is professionally produced with cinematic quality.
Remember when YouTube didn’t exist? Before 2005, local songwriters used to watch MTV and only dream of having their music video on public television one day. Today, no one needs to dream anymore. You just have to make a video and press upload. And it’s easy for the viewer, as well, but the algorithm doesn’t always suggest the music videos being created by the people living around us. As a result, much of our local culture gets overlooked and our perception of culture gets defined by the mainstream, which is usually made up of people not living in Berlin.
This event is about connecting local community to their local culture. As much as we all love YouTube, as a digital space, it isn’t able to physically bring local community members together in one room. The cinema, however, does.

The kino offers us a physical space where community can meet to watch films and videos made by people living in Berlin. Most importantly, it has the power to spark an offline conversation about what we are creating, who we are as a community, and what our local culture looks like.

With these words, we warmly welcome you, your date, family, friends and neighbors to City Kino in Wedding to discover 15 Berlin-based songwriters, their original songs, and their cinematic music videos. The screening is followed by a social gathering in the lobby. Many of the artists and videographers will be attending the event, and you’re welcome to meet them after the show. We’ll be having drinks and talking about the videos.

Tickets are 8€. Get your tickets online or at the door.
