The 7th Berlin International Directors Lounge
February 10 through 20, 2011
Meinblau, Pfefferberg, Berlin Mitte

This year's 7th Berlin International Directors
Lounge has attracted an outstanding number of
international artists and filmmakers to come to
Berlin, to be personally present and to introduce
their programme or show their art. The media art
festival, organized by Berlin artists, will again
present not just a selection of this year's best
submissions, but exhibit a large number of
curated programmes on specific topics selected by
German and international guest curators.
Directors Lounge features three main programmes
every day, together with live music events, DJ's
and a loop programme at the lounge bar. The
lounge invites for meetings and discussions, or
just a cool chill-out.

Directors Lounge as an initiative of artists
encompasses monthly screenings, exhibitions and
art events for several years now. And, the
festival in February that features a wide and
international spectrum of experimental works,
documentary films and art works, mostly focussing
on the short form. This all happens in a relaxed
ambience, in the mode of an open house, a
meeting-point during Berlinale and the idea of a
lounge that has become much more than an
insider's tip in the Berlin art scene.

Beginning with Febr. 10th over the period of ten
days, and starting at 6 pm, Directors Lounge
features a daily programme of specials at
Meinblau on Pfefferberg in Berlin-Mitte, the
heart of Berlin. Highlights include composer
Michael Nyman, who will personally present his
film work; Jean-Gabriel Périot, one of the most
important exponents of French experimental film;
the Collectif Jeune Cinéma; Alexei Dmitriev (St.
Petersburg), shooting star of the international
curator scene; Berlin gallerist Fridey Mickel;
Kika Nicolela (Brazil); Klaus W. Eisenlohrs
"Urban Research"; the Zebra Poetry Film Festival
and films by artists of the Myriam Blundell
Project (London), to name only a few. Following a
good old tradition of Directors Lounge's
curators, the program will be out just shortly
before the start of the festival. Check it out
