The mission of the Berlin International Cinefest is to expand the arts and culture offerings of the city. We hope to make this happen by providing an opportunity for individuals and organizations to come together and celebrate independent films, filmmakers and other local artists. The Berlin International Cinefest is designed to include and acknowledge the creative contributions of youth as well as adults while benefiting the community educationally, socially, and economically.
