Berlinale Summer Festival tickets: My right seat is empty – Culture

Berlinale fans who managed to get tickets to the coveted outdoor performances of the “Summer Special” are sometimes surprised. Everything is already completely sold out, hopelessly, and when your gaze wanders over the rows of benches or lounge chairs in the evening, you will be amazed to discover that not all seats are occupied. And the distances that correspond to the distance. how is that

You can already guess it yourself: tickets are reserved, hard to rebook, and some people may simply not be able to take care of something if something shows up too soon.

In addition, this exceptional year Summer Berlinale is organized on a federal basis in cooperation with 16 outdoor venues spread across the city. Unlike the usual, there is no central sales of tickets, on the festival website you are directed only to the platforms of cinema operators.

Therefore, at the request of the Berlinale office, there are no central options for cancellation or transfer. It’s handled differently, depending on the outdoor cinema guidelines involved.

In some cinemas – such as those in Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Rehbergen, Hasenheide, Charlottenburg and Kulturforum – you can cancel online until the afternoon, sometimes even 90 minutes before the show. This works at Yorck Cinemas via a link in the confirmation email. With others via [email protected]. Some can also be canceled on site, provided there is a box office. Usually there are vouchers as an alternative.

Tickets canceled in time are instantly sold out online again, so with a little luck you can even buy last minute tickets.

There is also the possibility of transferring your ticket: on the island of the Central Film Museums, directly operated by the Berliner Festspiele, there is an on-site counter for short-term “rebranding” of personal tickets to other names. Most cinemas have hygiene compliant solutions ready for such on-site broadcasting.

In any case, the festival asks visitors to contact the respective venue directly in case of doubt. She recommends getting the most up-to-date information about offers that are already sold out To check again if tickets are available again.

On Sunday concludes the audience event at the Berlinale 71, including the winning films of the Audience Award and the Audience Award for the main competition, which were launched especially in this extraordinary year. One or two programs have been offered every evening at 16 outdoor locations since June 9. About 60,000 tickets are available in total.
