A Place to Be
The stage is set for the Bildrausch Salon 2021! Bildrausch is occupying Theaterplatz with its new festival centre: A open space for encounters and a central meeting point with a fine bar and eatery.
The things that this space has already seen and heard! Be it a legendary concert or a heated panel debate, be it an intimate film screening, analogue film development or concentrated film critique, be it performance, an opening event or a party: for all those who are not sitting in the cinema or on the piazza, the Bildrausch Salon is the place to be, and even in 2021 nobody will want to avoid it!
To celebrate our birthday, we are giving our dear audience a new festival centre and are thereby occupying Theaterplatz – a place that is no stranger to us either. The square was the location of the world's first film karaoke in 2016, as well as the venue for the first Grand Prix de Basel. And it was here that we vigourously protested an attack against democracy in 2012. Between Stadtkino and kult.kino atelier, 2021 will see the creation of an open space for encounters and a central meeting point with a fine bar and eatery: the stage is set for the Bildrausch Salon 2021!
