Film Restored. The Film Heritage Festival

Though the fifth edition of the Film Restored Film Heritage Festival can only take place under restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a total of 21 film programs from over 15 countries can still be seen on the big screen from October 27 to November 1, all of which were produced, handed down and restored thanks to European cooperation. This year’s festival, titled "A European Affair", is dedicated to the meaningful contribution of cross-border cooperation in the archiving and restoration of film heritage. To mark the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII, four films will be presented that deal with this turning point in European history. The film program will be supplemented by workshop presentations, talks and panel discussions.

arsenal 3 in October: Mushroom Associations, Prologue to an enquiry, Footnote to Bertrand Bonello’s “Zombie Child”

The program of our virtual cinema www.arsenal-3-berlin.de makes direct reference to the activities carried out by our institution: the program of the Arsenal 1 & 2 cinemas at Potsdamer Platz, the titles that form part of our arsenal distribution range, or our Living Archive archival practice, which is rooted in both participation and production.

In October we will show three programs: “Pilz-Assoziationen” (Mushroom Associations) is a reference to OLANDA (Bernd Schoch, Germany 2019), which arsenal distribution will bring to cinemas on October 18. The “Archive außer sich” project will screen a series of films that deal with strategies in publishing. And two films revolving around the theme of voodoo will be shown as footnotes to Bertrand Bonello’s ZOMBI CHILD (France 2019), which opens our Bonello retrospective on October 2.
