From the cafebabel.com corner of the Berlinale, around forty people attended cafebabel.com Berlin's Green Cinema debate on 11 February in Berlin's tazcafe.
In a panel moderated by French journalist Sebastien Vannier...
... came together to debate:
Can green cinema influence ecological practice? What does the term mean? Does a genre even exist?
The debate was attended by members of cafebabel.es, cafebabel.fr and cafebabel.co.uk: you can read articles and see slideshows from a special 'Green Europe in Berlin' edition by Laura Tangre, Melanie de Groot van Embden, Concha Hierro and Ester Arauzo in March in six languages on cafebabel.com
There were even home-baked cakes from the cafebabel.com Berlin team to celebrate the magazine's ten-year anniversary (pictured, Christiane Loetsch, for our tummies, thanks Sandra Wickert)
A billion thanks to the cafebabel.com Berlin team who organised the debate, and who were also our hosts for the four days in Berlin (L-R Stefano Lipiello, Sergio Marx and far right Christiane Loetsch. Thanks also to Matthias Jekosch)
