The HOBO Film Fest at betahaus this Wednesday

It seems that we go vintage next week. On wednesday we do host the HOBO FILM FEST @betahaus. While we are kind of known to center events around the digital nomads, the HOBO FILM FEST seems to be kind of an hommage to the hobos and tramps that somehow managed to live, work and travel without an iphone, dopplr or any facebook application.

They didn't even blog stuff... Here we go:

The railroad industry in America has played an immense role in the development and progression of our modern society. Besides its most obvious role as a life line for supplies and sustenance to newly burgeoning towns and industry, it helped spawn an incredible subculture of people, the hobos and tramps of America. These hobos used the trains during the great depression in order to seek work, and a whole society of people grew around the railroads.Agency Films has long been associated with the railways and has produced multiple short films and television programming around the subject of train hopping and have made it their mission to preserve the history of the American train tramp. We have generated national interest due to our increasingly popular television shows, You Tube broadcasts, and the yearly Asheville Rejects Film Festival.

Agency Films is due to kicked off the European leg of their Hobo Film Festival September 2009 and will embark on an international tour in betahaus berlin on november the 11th. They have brought together dozens of filmmakers who produce films around train hopping and hobo culture and are gathering even more submissions to create the ultimate visual dichotomy of this colorful and truly important facet of American history.

The tour starts in Berlin and has over 16 stops along the route, including Prauge, Budapest, Vienna, Rome, Zurich, Barcelona, Paris, London, Bristol, Dublin, Brussel, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Oslo.

  • Event Spaces
  • More Meeting Rooms
  • More Team Rooms
  • More Call Boxes
  • A Rooftop Terrace
  • A Café

We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!

We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.

The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node

The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next. 

We want to hear from you! Email us at themove@betahaus.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!). 

We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!

We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!

Not a blockchain startup but looking for a coworking space? Be sure to check out the flexible membership options at betahaus!

Finally, You describe your target group as LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), which is a very niche market. Can you tell us more about what type of people they ARE and what theY value? What's some advice you can share to other startups targeting this market?
