Directions to the Thalia Programm Kinos:
The simplest way is to take the S-Bahn to the Babelsberg station (S7), from which the Thalia is only a few steps away. Those coming by tram should take Line 94 to the S-Babelsberg/Wattstraße stop.
In addition, different busses stop near the festival cinema: the Rathaus Babelsberg stop (line 690/693), for example. The bus stops are 3-5 minutes away from the Thalia.
Directions to the Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen (HFF):
Take the S-Bahn to the Griebnitzsee station (S7). From there, it is either a ~15 minute walk or 1 stop (get off at Stahnsdorfer Str./August-Bebel Str.) with the bus (line 696). You then have to cross the Stahnsdorfer Str. and walk down August-Bebel Str. until you reach Marlene-Dietrich-Allee. Walk this street down until you reach the HFF.
It is often faster to take the Regional Express (RE) from Berlin toward Belzig/Dessau until the Potsdam Medienstsadt-Babelsberg station. From there, either take Bus 696 (toward Griebnitzsee) to the Stahnsdorfer Str./August-Bebel Str. stop or simply walk.
