Director's Lounge is a screening event running along side The Berlin International Film Festival. As festivals become larger and more important, we should expect more events like this one.

Art Basel Miami Beach, the art fair branch in the US already encourages events similar in conception to Director's Lounge. I think these events are a good idea, especially if they continue to run even when the other event isn't.
