Berlin Revolution Film Festival celebrates and promotes True Independent Films of all kinds from all around the world!


We present self produced films - not tied to big production companies, institutions or TV stations. Here you'll find unconventional and underground films made with a personal voice and style.

For our 4th edition we have three highlighted sections: Dysopic & Apocalyptic, Myths & Sagas and Experimental Lgbtq's.

In our programming we first and foremost seek bravery, a lust to experiment and express using the medium of Film, regardless if the film maker is an amateur starting out or an established professional. Experimental, Fiction, Documentary, Animation and all sorts of genres – anything goes as long as the banner of Independence is held high. 


Participating at the festival should be a valuable experience, and something film makers, enthusiasts, cinephiles, audience and everyone visiting look forward to return to. To encourage and support this we provide accomodation to all selected film makers in Berlin for the Festival. And we have a category for previous participants where they have a cut blanche to screen their new films. This allows for the building of a peer-to-peer community where participants can easily return, and for visitors to meet up with the many attending film makers.


We also invite and pay for accomodation for film organizations attending the festival such as film critics, festivals, film clubs, producers etc that have focus on True Independent Cinema. All to make it a both friendly, relaxed and valuable experience for everyone attending.


So far we have screened hundreds of films from more than 50 different countries such as Brazil, Iran, USA, Russia, Sweden, Lebanon, Tunisia and of course Germany to name a few. We've also been blessed to have film makers visiting the festival from many of these countries.


We focus on the film makers in the core of the festival, to really establish a platform that isn't than just a "one and done" event, but rather the opposite where the first experience with screenings, meetings, networking and fun is just the first of many to come. We work to make it a festival film makers return to - to show their new works but also to meet up with the others they met the first time around, to see what they have done and to discover new films, meet new colleagues and friends.
