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 premiere, 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…
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.
A packed schedule included not only visits to the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate, but also the first visit to the Berlin Film Festival.
A moving visit to the Holocaust museum was followed by more time getting industry insight at the film festival.
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.
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!
