FRED Film Radio will be collecting the interviews of Berlinale Talents 2017 in its 15th edition.
Berlinale Talents is the annual summit and networking platform of the Berlin International Film Festival for 250 outstanding creatives from the fields of film and drama series.
On its 15th anniversary, Berlinale Talents once again offers the public and its 250 Talents a diverse programme of events, and proves that it’s still young enough to keep reinventing itself.
“This year’s theme, ‘Courage: Against All Odds,’ couldn’t feel timelier. While segregation is on the rise elsewhere, we stand in solidarity with those who believe in respect and the diversity of culture. Every year, our audiences, guests and Talents prove with their courage and love of cinema that together we’re stronger and more creative,” comments programme manager Florian Weghorn.
The everyday bravery of today’s film professionals takes centre stage at the 25 public events at HAU Hebbel am Ufer from February 11 to 16, 2017. In addition, Berlinale Talentspresents five public screenings of outstanding alumni films from this year’s Berlinalefestival programme. All in all, Berlinale Talents can once again boast impressive results in its talent development: 93 films, made with the contributions of 131 alumni, are screening at the Berlinale this year.
