Lakeside Film Festival | Vol.10
JULY 5-7, 2024

July 5th - 7th, 2024
Celebrating 10 years of Lakeside Film Festival. 
Join us for an open-air cinema weekend held by a remote lake in the woods just outside of Berlin.
For the tenth year, the Lakeside festival team take over an entire former GDR holiday camp and convert it into a weekend film festival consisting of four large outdoor cinema stages.
Screening late into the night the open-air film program includes a selection of the latest film festival titles, plus cult classics, psychedelic horrors, stoner comedies, documentaries, and short films.
During the day enjoy swimming in the lake, relaxing in nature or joining the program of podcast recordings, film quizzes, live music and DJs.



Lakeside Film Festival is located in the beautiful Brandenburg countryside near the Polish border. It is easily reachable from Berlin by train. The campsite has a secluded lake, plenty of space for enjoying the sun, a fireplace and grill. 


Klingemühle 4, 15848 Friedland, OT Chossewitz, Brandenburg, Germany

How To Get There


The nearest train station is Grunow (LOS), sometimes also called Grunow (Niederlausitz). There are two options to travel from Berlin by train:


BEST OPTION: RB36 from Königs Wusterhausen to Grunow: Take an S-Bahn to Königs Wusterhausen. Then take the RB36 regional train from Königs Wusterhausen (direction Frankfurt Oder) and get off at Grunow. Please be aware that although bikes can be taken, the train has limited space for bikes.

OPTION 2 (from Frankfurt Oder): If you want to use this route, here is how:

RE1 from Hauptbahnhof via Frankfurt Oder to Grunow: Take the RE1 from Hauptbahnhof or Ostkreuz. Travel to Frankfurt Oder.  From there wait for the RB36 direction Berlin (Königs Wusterhausen). Once you have taken it, get off at Grunow. 


As far as we have been told by DB, there are no disruptions or replacement buses but please check beforehand for potential changes.


A shuttle bus service will run from Grunow train station to the campsite during the festival. The shuttle runs regularly from Friday to Sunday between the following times.


Shuttle Times: 

Friday​: 15:30 - 21:30 hours.

Saturday: 11:30 - 16:00 hours

Sunday: 12:00-18:15 hours 


You can also bring a bike and ride from the train station. It’s a beautiful ride! Be aware that the train staff may ask you to wait for the next train (1 hour) if the train is full.  If carrying equipment, you may ask the shuttle bus to transport it from the station.


We welcome everyone to use public transport to minimize the use of cars in the forest. That said, cars, vans and RVs are allowed.

We politely ask you to park your vehicles only in the designated parking area.

The parking costs 30 € for the weekend. Please collect your parking pass at the accreditation upon arrival.

It is forbidden to park in the green areas around the site, as they need to be clear for the fire brigade and our utility vehicles. Please help us keep those clear of obstructions.

Food and Drinks

The Lakeside Diner will serve a menu of meals and snacks, with vegan and vegetarian options.  There will be breakfast, lunch and dinner menus all weekend. 

Meat options to grill will be sold at the bar.

You can also bring your own food and drinks. There is a communal grill for use in the Village area. Please note: there are no shops anywhere nearby. For those coming by train, the last stop for groceries is Berlin or Frankfurt Oder.
