Wow. The man, the myth, the legend. 🤩🤯🌟🔥

The 74th Berlin International Film Festival will award US-director, producer and screenwriter Martin Scorsese the Honorary Golden Bear for his lifetime achievement in an award ceremony at the Berlinale Palast on February 20, 2024.

“For anyone who considers cinema as the art of shaping a story in such a way that is at both completely personal and universal; Martin Scorsese is an unmatched role model. His films have accompanied our history as spectators and human beings, his characters have lived and grown within us, his view of history and mankind has helped us to understand and question who we are and where we come from. It is a great pleasure to welcome once more a good friend of the festival and offer him our most prestigious prize of honor,“ says the Berlinale director duo Mariëtte Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.

Since the 1970s, the Oscar-winning director has been one of the most influential filmmakers in the world of cinema. The directorial works of the Italian American with Sicilian roots alone comprise more than 70 films. Many of his works have written film history, and the versatility of his oeuvre is unique.

The Berlinale associates Scorsese with presenting many of his films – including the spectacular concert film “Shine a Light“ about the Rolling Stones, which opened the Berlinale 2008. In addition, some Berlinale Classics were supported by “The Film Foundation” and the world's first exhibition on the director was shown by the Deutsche Kinemathek from January to May 2013.

The best gift of the festive season! The Berlinale Key Visual!

Just before the holidays, we are finally able to unwrap a very special gift for you: the 2024 key visual!

The attentive, open and approachable bear stands as a symbol for the focus of the 74th Berlinale: the festival as an open place for our audience and the film industry. Both have remained equally loyal to us over all the years and have made the Berlinale what it is – a place for encounters and exchange.

“I am delighted that we have been able to capture that spirit so well with this year’s motif," comments Mariëtte Rissenbeek, Executive Director of the Berlinale.

And that's not all: starting today, you can buy the main poster of the 2024 key visual in the Berlinale Online Shop via bit.ly/BerlinaleOnlineShop24 🛒

Stay tuned for the big Berlinale merch drop in January.

The key design was created by Berlin-based graphic designer Claudia Schramke. Thank you for this amazing artwork! 🖌️

Lupita Nyong'o is the 2024 president of the international Berlinale Jury! Read more about this exciting announcement at the link below.

We are excited to announce the president of the International Jury at the 74th Berlin International Film Festival: Lupita Nyong'o!

The Kenyan-Mexican actor, director, producer, and New York Times bestselling author celebrated her breakthrough in 2014 when she received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in “12 Years a Slave” by Steve McQueen.

“Lupita Nyong'o embodies what we appreciate in cinema: versatility in embracing different projects, addressing different audiences, and consistency to one idea that is quite recognizable in her characters, as diverse as they may look. We are happy and proud that she has accepted our invitation to be the jury president of the 74th Berlinale,” say Berlinale directors Mariëtte Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.

Since then, she has become one of the most high-profile international actors, inspiring audiences and film critics alike. In addition to her film career, Lupita Nyong'o is also active on the Broadway stage and wrote the children's book “Sulwe” in 2020, which was on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Lupita Nyong'o is currently preparing a podcast focusing on non-fictional storytelling from the African diaspora, and she is developing a series based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “Americanah.” She was recently the executive producer of the Sudanese film “Goodbye Julia,” which was selected by the Sudanese National Committee operating in exile to compete for the Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards.

The Berlinale is looking forward to welcoming Lupita Nyong'o to Berlin in February!

30/11/2023

It is with excitement and enthusiasm that we share the theme and key visual for our 22nd edition, Berlinale Talents 2024: Common Tongues – Speaking Out in the Language of Cinema.

Berlinale Talents has always been proof that people can understand each other beyond boundaries and barriers; that film in all its variety of expressive possibilities connects us. It's therefore hard to believe that this will be the first time we address the theme of language in greater depth. Do we all really speak the same language of cinema? What is said, and how it is understood, is never simple and we look forward to exploring that word by word, image by image.

In their key visual, the Berlin-based graphic design duo Ada Favaron and Imad Gebrael take the motto of "Common Tongues – Speaking Out in the Language of Cinema" and bring it to life, playing with the idea of what is seen and what is said by our eyes and, at times sharp, tongues.

“The Mastercard Enablement Programme has deepened my understanding of the project and highlighted its inherent complexities.

Despite the need for crucial steps, I am convinced of the project's urgency in the current political climate in Mexico.

A very insightful interview with Talents alumna Amanda Nell Eu, writer and director of the award-winning "Tiger Stripes". Despite the film winning Best Feature at Cannes’ critics week earlier this year and its selection as Malaysia's official entry to next year's Oscars, Malaysian audiences will see an entirely different version of the film because it has been heavily censored, which Eu says removes the heart of the film.

Other alumni attached to the film include producer Fei Ling Foo (BT 2020), co-producers Fran Borgia (BT 2014), Jonas Weydemann (BT 2011/13) and Yulia Evina Bhara (BT 2018/19) and editor Carlo Francisco Manatad (BT 2012).

Amanda Nell Eu’s drama is in the running for an Oscar but conservatism means viewers in her own country will see a version she disowns

Got 20 minutes? Check out the documentary "Puffling" from 2020 Berlinale Talents alumna Jessica Bishop. Now available to watch online on The New Yorker, it is a coming-of-age story about two teenagers on a remote Icelandic island who trade typical teenage partying for nocturnal puffin rescues.

Following its World Premiere at SXSW in March, the short went on to win the Oscar-Qualifying Jury Award for Documentary at Aspen Shortsfest and has since travelled the world screening at a number of BAFTA, BIFA and Oscar-qualifying festivals - including AFI FEST, Palm Springs, Galway Film Fleadh, DOK Leipzig, Hot Springs, and Camerimage. It was also recently selected for the prestigious DOC NYC Short List.

After an incredibly successful year so we are excited to see what comes next!

In Jessica Bishopp’s meditative short film, teen-agers in Iceland make it their mission to rescue lost puffins.

Berlinale Talents alumni, you have just over one week to apply for the Talents Footprints Mastercard Enablement Programme! Don't miss the unique chance to advance your socially driven, cinema-related project through expert mentorship and funding!

Take it from 2023 fellow Phillip Leteka, selected with his project Majoaneng–Academy of Images and Letters. "It has proven to be an extraordinary and enlightening journey. Beyond the grant funds provided, which have been instrumental in igniting this ambitious project of constructing a film industry in Lesotho from the ground up, the mentorship we have received has been of immeasurable value."

Since February, one of Phillip's highlights within the programme was an illuminating mentoring session with film programmer and distributor Hania Mroué, who is founder and director of Metropolis Cinema, Lebanon's only arthouse cinema. His project is now welcoming the first group of young filmmakers in its inaugural cycle.

"In these early stages of the Majoaneng–Academy of Images and Letters, which aims to nurture cinema in Lesotho by training a group of young visionaries, I am grateful for the unwavering support of the Talents Footprints—Mastercard Enablement Programme. These visionaries will provide a window to the world for Lesotho, and we are embarking on this incredible journey together."

Great article on our 2023 alumna Alina Șerban, whose feature-length directorial debut, "I Matter", is among the projects being pitched this week at the Crossroads Co-Production Forum, which takes places during the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
Written and directed by Șerban and produced by Ada Solomon of Bucharest-based microFILM, the film is a deeply personal story about a young Roma woman studying to be an actor who, faced with the threat of being kicked out of her orphanage, must suddenly confront the reality of making it through life on her own.

The actress-turned-director's first feature is inspired by her own journey from an impoverished childhood to a heralded career on stage and screen.
