ciné liminal

about us

the liminal refers to transitional stages and periods, to the blurring of fixed boundaries, to the occupation of the borderlands and to the in-between of stories, people and things.

ciné liminal is a collectively curated film programme by students, anthropologists, film enthusiasts and filmmakers. together we organise screenings with discussions in Kino in der Reitschule in Bern.

practical informations

regular screenings take place on Thursdays and start at 19:30 (Doors: 19:00) at Kino in der Reitschule, Neubrückstrasse 8. We do not have a fixed entrance fee. you pay as much as you like and support the screenings with a voluntary "kollekte" (cash only!). our film screenings and discussions are mostly English-friendly. films are shown in their original language version with subtitles. Kino in der Reitschule is barrier-free accessible. there are paving stones and some small thresholds on the way to the cinema.


Do you wish to participate in one of our events? are you considering to submit your film for our upcoming programme? would you like to collaborate with us? Or are you even interested in joining the collective? we are looking to hear from you!
