We may not be able to go on Col­lege trips right now, but this won’t be for­ev­er! So, we want­ed to share these great pic­tures from a Media study trip to Ger­many back in February. 

A staff team took 47 stu­dents from Lev­el 3 TV & Film and Jour­nal­ism cours­es on the four-night trip to the 70th annu­al Berli­nale 2020 Film Festival.

Dur­ing the trip they got lots of insight into the film indus­try, which includ­ed attend­ing a film pre­mière, lis­ten­ing to indus­try experts, and the chance to explore some of Berlin’s his­toric sites. 

The start of the trip involved overnight trav­el by coach to a hotel in Berlin city cen­tre, fol­lowed by… 

Day 1

A vis­it to Berlin’s Film Muse­um was on the agen­da first up, and some of the stu­dents also went along to find out all about espi­onage at the Spy Museum. 

Day 2

Inside Reichstag

A packed sched­ule includ­ed not only vis­its to the Reich­stag and Bran­den­burg Gate, but also the first vis­it to the Berlin Film Festival. 

Day 3

Group At One Of The Memorial Sites

A mov­ing vis­it to the Holo­caust muse­um was fol­lowed by more time get­ting indus­try insight at the film festival. 

Day 4

Watching A Film

To round off the trip, as well as more time at the fes­ti­val, the stu­dents man­aged to pack in lots of things on the last day. 

First up was a vis­it to the East Side Gallery, which is a 1.3km walk along a stretch of the Berlin Wall. They also vis­it­ed oth­er well-known sites such as Check­point Char­lie, which was the set­ting for lots of thrillers and spy films, and Pots­damer Platz, which is at the cen­tre of the Berlinale. 

Heading home

The fol­low­ing morn­ing, after a very ear­ly break­fast, the group spent the day trav­el­ling back to Nottingham. 

We look for­ward to arrang­ing more study trips and excur­sions in future!
