The Berlin Berlinale is the city´s larges event, with more than 19000 film professonials from 120 different countries are all coming to the exciting capital of Germany. Artists from around the world are attracted to Berlin. Many consider Berlin the unofficial capital of German film. It is the home to a rich cinema scene and a diverse, discerning public. Also, Berlin has captured the imagination of countless filmmakers. Over and over again, the city has served as the backdrop for great silver screen productions, often becoming itself the secret protagonist of the movie. Think “film” and “Berlin” is bound to spring to mind. For two weeks every year Berlin is totally enraptured by the Berlinale.
This festival enjoys by far the largest audience of any filmfestival in the world, with more than 200000 tickets that are being sold, each year…
Art, glamour, business and parties meet here at the Berlinale the coming to weeks. Potsdamer Platz will be the festivals centre.
About 400 films are shown, the majority of these films are world or European premieres.
There are a couple of different sections in which the movies are divided; big international movies in the Competition, independent and art-house productions in Panorama, movies specially for a young audience in the Generation section, the most exciting German cinema productions in Perspektive Deutsches Kino, an in-depth look at films from “distant” countries and experimental forms in the Forum, as well as an investigation of diverse cinematic possibilities in the Berlinale Shorts.
The programme is rounded off by a thematic Retrospective and a Homage, which focuses on the lifework of a great cinema personality. Both of these sections, which are curated by the Berlin Film Museum, aim to place contemporary cinema within a historical context.
Through film series, workshops, panels and thematic collaborations with other cultural players – the Berlinale offers countless forms of co-operation and creative interaction.
