Gay Travel Review – the Berlinale Film Festival

Author: , February 22nd, 2014

Berlinale 2014Last week saw an influx of tourists to Berlin. The city, painted red for the 64th annual Berlinale film festival. Protests & demonstrations, existential celebrity freakouts, a whole slew of parties and political statements thrown about–all more than usual for Berlin, but still manageable for a city as culturally diverse as Berlin.

Watching and reading the local and international media here, that means there has been a lot of stories coming out of the city. People proselytizing celebrities or certain feature films, friends stalking the red carpet and journalists hunting down celebrities. It can feel a bit mad, but at the same time, the city is something special during the 10-day Berlinale.

For me, though, the Berlinale is something different. It’s not about the celebrities. And it’s certainly not about the red carpet. For me, it’s the films. It’s the passion that permeates the cinemas. Showing up at the theaters, not being able to buy drinks or popcorn, buying tickets three days in advance.
