Description & Show Notes

B-Movie Cinema (Hamburg) in conversation with Filmhuis Cavia (Amsterdam)

Since more than 30 years the B-Movie Cinema presents an innovative and unique programme in the St. Pauli district in Hamburg, Germany. Starting out as a political initiative in 1987 it developed into an important cultural association linked to many initiatives, film festivals and artist groups today. It is one of the few cinemas in the city still able to show analogue films. In their editorial line the B-Movie team is focusing on avantgarde, underground and independent, feminist and LGBTQI* cinema as well as on unconventional works by young filmmakers from around the world. Known and appreciated for its special atmosphere and cosy foyer, the volunteer run venue is an open space for everyone.
