Episode two of our podcast, Berlinale's House of Talents, is now LIVE!
In this episode, we take a closer look at some of the different stations involved in the making of a movie. Cinematographers, screenwriters, and production designers pitch in as we travel through the Berlinale Talents archive to understand what it takes to carry a director’s vision to the big screen. The pros we talked to – visionaries like Josephine Decker, Agnès Godard or Uli Hanisch – are clear on one aspect of filmmaking: the virtue of collaboration.

Our 2020 alum Jivan Avetisyan needs your help to get his fourth feature film "Revival" up and running! Having reached their initial fundraising goal, the next six months are crucial in order to enable production. Read all the details at the link below.

"One woman’s secret forces three destinies to intertwine when a young robotics student living in France is determined to root out the truth of his father’s wartime death in Armenia / Artsakh… his girlfriend, a young Frenchwoman sets out to reunite with her estranged volcanologist father in Iceland to trace her indigenous Canadian roots… his esteemed French professor, a descendent of a Holocaust survivor, reclaims his abandoned Jewish roots in Israel in search of the meaning of life. Along the way, the hardships they face force them to make sacrifices that bring them closer to their true identities."
