Babylon is a cinema at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin Mitte neighborhood, opposite to the Volksbühne. Built in 1929, the cinema is typical for its construction period ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’. It’s one of the oldest cinemas in Berlin and serves as arthouse cinema, as well as a venue for the Berlinale and musical and literary cultural events.
The cinema combines the benefits of a decent atmosphere, architectural details and the qualities of a diverse venue.
Frequently asked questions
Important information on the current Covid-19 issue
Forward Festival Berlin unfortunately can not take place in May as originally planned due to the health crisis resulting from the Corona virus. As event organizers we are of course monitoring the situation closely and following the regulations by the authorities. After working with our speakers and partners we decided not to cancel, but to postpone the event to a new date after the summer: October 23rd 2020. All already bought tickets remain valid. We are looking forward to seeing you all in fall!
Looking forward to seeing you soon & please don’t forget to wash your hands!
I bought a ticket from a wrong ticket category or for a wrong city. What can I do?
Your ticket is transferable before validation. If you cannot make it to Forward Festival yourself, we encourage you to give/sell the ticket to another person. Make someone’s day a special one!
Can I get a refund for my ticket?
Unfortunately, we don’t do refunds, but since your name is not on the ticket – thus the ticket is not for a specific person – it is possible that you give/sell the ticket to another person before registration.
Where can I sign up for workshops?
Some of our workshops have a limited capacity of participants. You need to sign up in advance to snatch one of the spots. Last minute places will be available 15 minutes before the start of the workshop at the location. You can find all the information on how to sign up at the detailed description of each workshop. Some workshops are subject to an extra fee. You can buy access to the workshop in our ticket shop.
I'm at school or doing an apprenticeship,. Am I still eligible for a student ticket?
Yes you are! Everyone under 28 years old (on the first day of the festival) with a valid ID that proves that they’re currently enrolled in an officially recognized educational institution, can access the festival with a student ticket. If you are not sure whether your education/training is eligible, write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there volunteer opportunities at Forward Festival?
