Among filmmakers, Görlitz has long since ceased to be an insider’s tip.
Since the 1950s, the city has regularly served as a backdrop for international film productions. 


The Refrigeration Warehouse Kühlhaus Görlitz has established itself not only as our place of venue for the year 2022, but is also a place of creativity and culture for the entire area between Berzdorfer See  and the city of Görlitz/Zgorzelec.

In former communist times the warehouse served as a secret doomsday preservative. Nowadays it has been rebuilt as a cultural center and features art studios, sleeping bungalows, conference rooms and an industrial hall for installations, events and lots of spacious lawn and forest. You will have sufficient open space to relax and stay away from Corona infection.


The campsite, studio and event rooms and plenty of space around them provide us with the best conditions to be able to guarantee safe implementation under the hygiene regulations currently in force.
Our seminar rooms in the new studio house, the canteen or outside in the pavilion allow us to offer three workshops at the same time. 


Other venues are provided by excursions to our partners Kino Varsava in Liberec (CZE) and Zoom Festival in Jelenia Gora (POL) where parts of the academy will take place in the Kino.
