My name is Courtney. I am a 27 year old American gal living in Krakow. I teach English to get by but I am a writer with ambitions to direct films (as well as many other artistic endeavors.) As we speak, Berlinale is taking place in your fabulous city.I was previously thinking about coming to Berlin for the festival but decided against it for financial reasons. [I can't afford tickets so I am not even sure what events I would be able to attend...] I am currently off from work and decided that I could use this time to work on my own writing.

This morning I realized that it will be infinitely more inspiring to me to go to the festival, try my best to get into any screenings I can while enjoying the art scene that Berlin is famous for when I can't attend the films. The opportunity to meet other artists will be a joy. I know it is last minute but I am looking for help with getting into Berlinale screenings as well as a last minute couch.

Can anyone help? I have secured a ride to Berlin from Krakow with a ridesharing website. I will arrive in the city tomorrow, Sunday Feb 12th. If you can host me for any night between Sunday and Thursday that would be amazing. I will be bringing my own sleeping bag. I don't care about sleeping conditions, I will be happy to sleep on your floor so long as it is safe, dry and warm-ish. Check out my profile - you will see more about me and how others have reacted to me.

I apologize if anyone is offended by this blanket request - I will also be sending individual, personal requests to people in the proper way but in order to make this work I need to try everything I can! (I love and respect couch surfing.)

I have not had the good fortune to visit Berlin yet and I am really excited by this potential, last minute adventure.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!
