What is it?
Flaschenkino means Bottled Cinema in german. And that’s exactly what it is. It is a platform that uses the Viva Con Agua bottle and a mobile phone to display tailor-made content. It was born from a simple problem: people who buy the Viva con Agua bottled water think they are just a water brand from Sankt Pauli, having little idea about everything else that was inside Viva con Agua.
How does it work?
Download and open the Flaschenkino app (soon available - register here for the latest news). Select the video you want to watch. Position the smartphone over a table and the Viva con Agua bottle on top of it. Look through the bottle hole and enjoy. To enhance the experience, we recommend to watch the video in a dark room and the usage of headphones. Just watch the little animation below and you will see how easy it is.
We've recently launched the first ever Flaschenkino app. You can download from the Apple Store here and give us your feedback. We would love to hear from you about your experience. In case you're not an iPhone user, you can still access and watch the videos at app.flaschenkino.de
Thanks again for all our partners and supporters who designed, programmed and made the app a reality.
The booth is the itinerant Flaschenkino. It goes wherever it is needed. It is a little black room featuring a pillar with built-in smartphones and earbuds. It was our “Flaschenkino beta”. After the good reception and invitations to different events, we've decided to keep it. We have many ideas of how to improve our booth and make the experience even better. Our goal is to have 5 booths across Germany as info points for Viva con Agua, so people can understand and support their projects. We will also be on festivals, events, exhibitions and anywhere else we can spread our Flaschenkino message and help Viva con Agua. And you can help us achieve our goal.

Don't forget. All the content and realisation is made by our community made of creatives, supporters, donors and investor. Without them, the Flaschenkino project would not exist. Some supported the project since it was just a drawing on a paper. Some of them joined us later. But all of them are family to us. Check them here. Want to join? Contact us.
