    BERLIN: The Arthouse Cinema Training (ACT) will return for its 21st edition to Holzmarkt, an event campus in the heart of Berlin, from 19 to 25 August 2024.

    The only programme of its kind worldwide, the ACT gathers independent arthouse cinema professionals from across the globe for a week-long intensive workshop on running an arthouse film theatre and advancing film culture.

    The training aims at: employees, programme designers, and operators of arthouse cinemas who want to deepen their knowledge and skills; cinema operators who wish to open an arthouse cinema or transform their cinema into an arthouse cinema, employees of festivals, distributors and institutions who want to know more about the arthouse industry.

    The training provides a diverse lineup of workshops, lectures, masterclasses, and exclusive industry visits in which participants get to trade secrets with top industry professionals, exchange experiences, network, and discover new opportunities, trends, and developments within their industry. 

    “Arthouse theatres are vital to preserving the diversity of local cultures and the health of the entire film industry. Professionalisation, innovation and cooperation are the keys to preserving mission-driven arthouse cinemas within their local communities and as the beating heart of independent film. In close cooperation with global film professionals and our international partner networks, the Arthouse Cinema Training has, for decades, played a crucial role in advancing cinema and those who create it”, says Dr Christian Bräuer, president of the International Confederation of Arthouse Cinemas (CICAE), which runs the training together with the German cinema association AG Kino.

    The Training is generously supported by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, the Berlin Senate Chancellery and FFA.
