Berlin Film Festival’s Summer Screenings Event In Doubt Due To Covid-19 Restrictions
The Berlin Film Festival’s planned summer screenings event is in doubt due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions in Germany.
The festival said today: “The restrictions set out by the recently updated Infection Protection Act now make the planning of the Berlinale Summer Special a bigger challenge. The festival directors are currently in contact with the authorities to determine the next steps for an all-outdoor event. The Berlinale also wants to explore the possibility of a pilot cultural event with mandatory testing. A final decision regarding the Summer Special will be made beginning of May. Everyone’s health and curbing the development of the pandemic is, of course, the top priority when making any considerations.”
