ARS BALTICA attended the Baltic Motion reception at the Landesvertretung in Berlin, that was co-organized by MOIN Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and Nordic Film Days on 21 February.
This year's Baltic Motion revolved around the topic of immersive media. At the beginning of the event, the audience was welcomed by the Minister for Digitisation of Schleswig-Holstein Dirk Schrödter. A discussion between the new MOIN site manager in Schleswig-Holstein Nicola Jones, MOIN managing director Helge Albers, Nordic Film Days artistic director Thomas Hailer and director Lars Jessen took place afterwards on the main stage.
A 360 degree experience by the French artist and music producer Molécule was shown in the fulldome, while short films funded by MOIN such as "Walking the Tiger" by Kilian Helmbrecht and "and died together one day" by Pola Rader could be watched every hour in an adjacent room. ARS BALTICA together with exhibitors Muthesius Kunsthochschule, Ocean Mind Edutainment, von Dorsch, CineMare International Ocean Film Festival Kiel and IFgameSH presented their work to the audience on the top deck.
Baltic Motion is an annually event on the occasion of the Berlinale for film and media professionals from the Baltic Sea Regon.
