As we announced earlier in December, the team of Todd Field's "Tár" will join us at Berlinale Talents 2023 for an exploration of the music-centric drama. We are so looking forward to welcoming them all, and to welcoming the film's composer Hildur Guðnadóttir back once again to the stage at HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Hildur joined us in 2020 to discuss her tendency towards the eccentric in her work, including on the drama series "Chernobyl" and Todd Phillips' "Joker".

Berlin Film Residencies provides an overview of fellowships for international filmmakers looking for opportunities in Berlin, and for local creatives seeking scholarships abroad. Initiated by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Nipkow Programm and the Berlinale - Berlin International Film Festival, it is the platform for talent development, which we fervently support.
Our connection runs deeper however, with members of the Berlinale Talents team frequently leading workshops for the fellows of the various programmes, and many Berlinale Talents alumni going on to receive one of these residencies in Berlin. We caught up with one such alumna, Maria Carla Del Rio, who was a Berlinale Talent in 2015 and again in 2017 with a project selected for the Talent Project Market. We spoke to her about her time with us, at the Nipkow Programme, and much more.

✨ Meet the 2023 Berlinale Talents! ✨

Our 204 Talents, selected from 3,295 applications, come from 68 countries across the world, and we are very happy that the selection includes filmmakers from countries that have rarely been represented at Talents, such as Myanmar, Palestine, Nepal, Mongolia, Lesotho, Bangladesh, Costa Rica. Many of the talents have already worked on renowned projects, with more than 40 who have been involved in previous Berlinale films.

President of the International Jury at the 73rd Berlin International Film Festival, Kristen Stewart folks! 👏👏👏

Drum roll, please... The Berlinale is delighted to announce the president of the International Jury at the 73rd Berlin International Film Festival: Kristen Stewart!

"Young, shining and with an impressive body of work behind her, Kristen Stewart is the perfect bridge between the US and Europe," say the festival directors Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian, who are excited about the American actor, screenwriter and director taking on this distinguished task.

Kristen Stewart, considered as one of the major young talents of Hollywood, is the first American ever receiving the French film award César in 2015 for her role in "Clouds of Sils Maria" by Olivier Assayas alongside Juliette Binoche.

Beside her outstanding acting career she celebrated her directorial and screenwriting debut with the short film "Come Swim" in 2018 and is currently working on her feature-length directorial debut, the film adaptation of the bestseller "The Chronology of Water" by Lidia Yuknavitch.

The Berlinale is looking forward to welcome Kristen Stewart in Berlin in February!

06/12/2022

As part of our commitment to talent development, we are very happy to cooperate with Perspektive Deutsches Kino and the Deutsche Filmakademie to welcome the series Perspektive Match to our festival home of HAU Hebbel am Ufer.

We are also very pleased to announce that another cooperation with Perspektive Deutsches Kino, the Kompagnon Fellowship programme, which has already supported talents such as Nora Fingscheidt and Julian Radlmaier, will continue in 2023 now enjoying the support of the German Federal Film Board (FFA) for the first time.

For all details read the full press release: bit.ly/PerspektiveMatch23

The Berlinale stands for the long-term promotion of talent. The section Perspektive Deutsches Kino is underlining its commitment to up-and-coming creatives in Germany with a special focus on supporting and granting visibility to all film skills, viewing film as a collective work.

Hence, in the supplementary film series Perspektive Match, a special talent from a film discipline will be honoured in Perspektive-films. The selected talents will be brought into exchange with established colleagues from the Deutsche Filmakademie through a mentorship. In cooperation with Berlinale Talents, a film in which the mentor was involved will be shown publicly at the HAU Hebbel am Ufer Theatre (HAU1) on four afternoons, followed by a panel discussion between the mentor and the Perspektive talent.

In addition, the Kompagnon Fellowship Programme will be continued in 2023. Supported by the German Federal Film Board (FFA) for the first time, Berlinale Talents and Perspektive Deutsches Kino will once again mentor directors and screenwriters living in Germany for the duration of a full year. The Kompagnon Fellowship holders are selected by a jury and will be announced during the festival.

The Heiner Carow Prize for the promotion of German cinema art will be awarded at the Berlinale for the tenth time, honouring a talent from Perspektive Deutsches Kino who has made a particular mark on a documentary or feature film in the section. The prize is sponsored by the DEFA Foundation.

We are happy to announce that Berlinale Talents will dedicate its 21st edition to Humour in Serious Times, focusing on the strengthening and restorative powers of this universal human trait.

Film has always been entertainment, even under challenging circumstances. So what about humour in films today? What can we laugh about, despite or precisely because of serious issues? A deftly delivered joke is a skill, it connects people, ingeniously condenses truth and delivers a swift punchline message. With that in mind, we are very pleased to reveal that the first guest in our public programme will be Ruben Östlund, whose stinging social satire, the Palme d'Or-winning "Triangle of Sadness" is currently both provoking and thrilling audiences in cinemas across the world.

Reflecting our theme and bringing warm colours into cold February is our key visual by illustrator Leandro Alzate and graphic designer Miriam Jacobi. Cheerful at first glance and complex in detail, they have interpreted the different dimensions of humour to bring the theme "You Must be Joking - Humour in Serious Times" to life.

28/11/2022

Each year, the theme of Talents Buenos Aires refers to an emblematic film. The 18th edition in 2023 will run under the title "Las Furias", after the namesake feature by the pioneering filmmaker Vlasta Lah. It was the first sound feature film written and directed by a woman in Argentina in 1960, but was not properly preserved and now the original negative is missing.
This story forms the focus of the upcoming edition - the importance of the role of (audiovisual) memory from a material perspective, the roles of cinematheques and archives and their many difficulties, and of course the importance of shared discussion about films not directed, written, made, conceived or produced by men.

Full details on the theme: talentsba.ucine.edu.ar/las_furias/

Are you as excited as we are to welcome THE Steven Spielberg to Berlin in February?! ✨🤩✨

The Berlinale is thrilled to announce that the 2023 Homage will be devoted to Steven Spielberg. The US-American director, producer and screenwriter will also be awarded the Honorary Golden Bear for lifetime achievement at the 73rd Berlin International Film Festival. Congratulations!

A recipient and nominee of multiple Academy Awards, Spielberg is one of the world's most renowned filmmakers of all time. His oeuvre, consisting of over 100 films and series, is unique in the history of international cinema of the past 60 years for its immense variety.

“With an incredible career, Steven Spielberg has not only enchanted generations of viewers all over the world, but has also given a new meaning to the ‘cinema’ as the factory of dreams. If the 2023 Berlinale represents a new beginning we couldn’t find a better start than the one offered by Spielberg’s great work,” says the Berlinale director duo Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.

His most recent work “The Fabelmans“ will be screened during the Award Ceremony at the Berlinale Palast and released in German cinemas in March 2023.

Stay tuned for the full Homage line-up and the announcement of the date of the Award Ceremony!
