Berlin Calling Release Party

After seven years of hard work and a year of screenings, it’s been a thrill to finally see “Berlin Calling” officially released to the world on Passion River Films. So we couldn’t just celebrate alone – and we’re in Los Angeles, where no movie release is official without a release party. We set a date for the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, invited our closest friends and supporters, put together goodie bags filled with “Berlin Calling” memorabilia and donated items including CDs and beauty products and set out to party!

Berlin Calling Gift Bags

There was only one place we could think of to have the party – Canter’s Deli in Hollywood – the perfect combination of legendary Jewish deli and rock ‘n’ roll. Canter’s was the place “Berlin Calling”‘s Kastle went for a bite after many late nights in the clubs as a music journalist and where she discovered a few bands jamming in the adjacent bar, The Kibitz Room. It’s been the place where musicians, actors and Hollywood movers and shakers have noshed while seeing and being seen. In fact, Canter’s own Marc Canter was a close friend and photographer for the band Guns ‘N Roses, who the director of “Berlin Calling” did the first five videos for. The links were all there!
