For the 70th anniversary of the Berlinale, and in a seventh season as Principal Sponsor, with all-electric trips in its progressive and elegant fleet, Audi is setting an exciting scene for film festival celebrities on their way to the Red Carpet from 20 February to 1 March. The fleet includes the fully electric Audi e-tron* and two new plug-in hybrid models, the Audi A8 TFSI e* and A7 Sportback TFSI e*. With the Berlinale Open House program in the Audi Berlinale Lounge, Audi and the Berlinale are also jointly supporting dialogue on various perspectives that reflect dynamic issues of the future. Directly opposite the Berlinale Palast, festival fans and interested visitors will meet to experience interviews, discussions, music acts and interactive events connected with the Berlinale.
