More than 300,000 sold tickets, more than 20,000 professional visitors from 122 countries, including around 3,800 journalists: art, glamour, parties and business are all inseparably linked at the Berlinale.

Happy Birthday, George Clooney.
This trio has been at the forefront of ambitious international productions such as Nadav Lapid's Golden-Bear-winning "Synonymes" and the international breakthrough success "Toni Erdmann". Maren Ade, Jonas Dornbach, and Janine Jackowski joined the Berlinale Talents earlier this year to share some of the secrets of their trade.
Happy Birthday, Wes Anderson.
Here's a short clip of Wes and Bill Murray on the drums during the Opening of the 2018 Berlinale.

In these challenging times shaped by the coronavirus, it is particularly encouraging to witness what an excellent contribution films once again make to our culture.

The IDFA holds a wealth of amazing documentaries in their streaming archive. Many titles are available for free, others to rent for a small contribution, which goes directly to the filmmakers, distributors, or other rights holders.
Why not check out last year’s Golden Bear-winner for Best Short Film: "Umbra" by Florian Fischer and Johannes Krell.
And if you have a little more time, there are plenty of other Berlinale films in the archive. For example Agnès Varda's swansong "Varda by Agnès", which premiered at last year's Berlinale.
Or Murray Cummings' personal portrait of the British singer-songwriter and global superstar Ed Sheeran. The documentary "Songwriter" celebrated its World premiere at the Berlinale in 2018.
Or "Talking About Trees", the recipient of the 2019 Glashütte Original – Documentary Award.
Enjoy streaming until we can go back to the cinemas. And stay safe.

Asked about the possibility of a female perspective in cinema, Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, section head of Forum Expanded, answered in an unforgettable interview last year: „Fundamentally? There is no female perspective – that’s the wrong question. There’s a feminist perspective, a political one. A perspective against the perspective of power that assigns meaning. This is probably most clearly shown in the film VARIETY.“ For her, VARIETY is a key work in the way it translates feminist theory into a cinematic form. Bette Gordon’s film, which originally premiered in 1984 in the Berlinale Forum, is part of this week’s #arsenal3 programme. For everyone who wants to dig deeper.
Remember Suhaib Gasmelbari’s fantastic and multi-award winning documentary TALKING ABOUT TREES about the dream of a Sudanese cinema from the 2019 Berlinale Panorama?
Three of the films of one of the protagonists, Ibrahim Shaddad, are available this week at #arsenal3 – among others JAGDPARTIE, his 1964 graduation film, shot in a forest in Brandenburg, using a Western look to portray the hunt for a Black man.
Streaming is for free but don’t forget to donate: https://bit.ly/2V4zDM0

It's tough staying at home, we know. To help you spend the time, we'll be giving you some Berlinale streaming tips over the next days.
Starting off with the critically lauded series "Freud", which premiered at this year's Berlinale Series and which hits Netflix today. A "gripping expedition into the depth of the soul" (Süddeutsche Zeitung), starring Robert Finster and Ella Rumpf. Enjoy.
Eager to make his name in 19th-century Vienna, a hungry young Sigmund Freud joins a psychic and an inspector to solve a string of bloody mysteries.
We are all in this together. And we can all do our bit.
As we are headed for uncertain times, we want to take a moment to talk about the cinemas and film institutions that are affected by the current situation. Whether in New York, Berlin, São Paulo or in a small town somewhere in Italy: Their work is so important and it is vital that they will still be there once we return to normal. Please take a moment to check out if there is a way to help your local cinema. Many of them have membership options, ticket books or gift cards. Also check if your local community's film festival, which perhaps had to cancel or postpone, needs support. And if there is a film that you wanted to see but cannot due to the closures, see if you can support it in any other way. A lot of folks are finding amazing solutions to continue to give safe access to culture, which is so important at the moment.
We believe in the power and the remarkable spirit of the film community. We see it every year here in Berlin. We can do this. We just have to take care of each other. ❤️
Fantastic news: Berlinale films score 27 nominations (!) for this year's German Film Awards. Among them last year's Silver Bear-winner "Systemsprenger" and this year's Competition entry "Berlin Alexanderplatz". Congratulations to all the films!

We are shocked by the recent incarceration order for Golden Bear-winner Mohammad Rasoulof. The Berlinale therefore officially protests the imminent detention. As a festival, we are fundamentally committed to the freedom of expression and the freedom of the arts. Without exception. "We hope that the Iranian authorities will soon revise the judgment," say the Berlinale directors, Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.
To all the filmmakers, our audiences, and our whole community: Please share this message or leave a comment in support of Mohammad Rasoulof.

"I wanted to talk about people who push responsibility away from themselves and say that decisions are taking because of higher powers. But they can actually say 'No!' – and that is their strength."
Highlights from yesterday's Press Conference with all the award winners of 2020. And Golden Bear winner Mohammad Rasoulof calling in via phone from Iran. He was not allowed to leave the country to travel to Berlin.
This year's Compass-Perspektive-Award went to Janna Ji Wonders for "Walchensee Forever". Here's a look back at the award ceremony. Congratulations again.
"Cinema holds possibilities to read beyond the physical human experience". We are still very touched and would like to thank all filmmakers, actors, creatives and the audience for shaping an emotional and meaningful Award Ceremony Gala last night - proving the power of cinema and the strength of collectivity!
Yesterday was not just the day of the Golden Bear. Our Independent Juries also handed out their highly sought-after awards. Congratulations to all the winners. May your films travel far and wide.

The Golden Bear for Best Film of the 70th #Berlinale goes to "Sheytan vojud nadarad" (There Is No Evil), directed by Mohammad Rasoulof and produced by Mohammad Rasoulof, Kaveh Farnam, and Farzad Pak.
The four stories that comprise "Sheytan vojud nadarad" are variations on the crucial themes of moral strength and the death penalty that ask to what extent individual freedom can be expressed under a despotic regime and its seemingly inescapable threats.
The Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize goes to "Never Rarely Sometimes Always" by Eliza Hittman.
An intimate portrait of two teenage girls from rural Pennsylvania. Faced with an unintended pregnancy and lack of support, Autumn and her cousin Skylar set off across state lines to New York City.
The Silver Bear for Best Director goes to Hong Sangsoo for "Domangchin yeoja" (The Woman Who Ran).
While her husband is on a business trip, Gamhee meets three of her friends on the outskirts of Seoul. They make friendly conversation, as always, but there are different currents flowing independently of each other, both above and below the surface.
The Silver Bear for Best Actress goes to Paula Beer in "Undine" by Christian Petzold.
The Silver Bear for Best Actor of the 70th Berlinale goes to Elio Germano in "Volevo nascondermi" (Hidden Away) by Giorgio Diritti.
Toni is expelled from Switzerland to Italy against his will. For years, he lives in poverty in the Po floodplains. But he never gives up his passion for drawing. The story of Antonio Ligabue, a revolutionary loner in modern art.
The Silver Bear for Best Screenplay goes to the D'Innocenzo Brothers for "Favolacce" (Bad Tales) by the D'Innocenzo Brothers.
A few families living out on a limb in the suburbs of Rome. Tensions here can explode at any time; ultimately it’s the children who bring about the collapse. The D’Innocenzo brothers’ second Berlinale film is a wild, surprisingly mature work.
The Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution of the 70th #Berlinale goes to Jürgen Jürges for the cinematography in "DAU. Natasha" by Ilya Khrzhanovskiy and Jekaterina Oertel.
Natasha works in the canteen of a secret Soviet research institute. She drinks a lot, likes to talk about love and embarks on an affair. State security intervenes. A tale of violence that is as radical as it is provocative.
The Silver Bear 70th Berlinale goes to "Effacer l’historique" (Delete History) by Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern.
Three social media victims declare war on the tech giants. A witty, apt depiction of our contemporary world devoid of history and stories, where nobody is in charge and an all-powerful data cloud threatens to swallow up our identity.
Potsdamer Platz 11

The Berlinale is a unique place of artistic exploration and entertainment. It is one of the largest public film festivals in the world, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe each year. For the film industry and the media, the eleven days in February are also one of the most important events in the annual calendar and an indispensable trading forum.
The Berlin International Film Festival enjoys an eventful history. The festival was created for the Berlin public in 1951, at the beginning of the Cold War, as a “showcase of the free world”. Shaped by the turbulent post-war period and the unique situation of a divided city, the Berlinale has developed into a place of intercultural exchange and a platform for the critical cinematic exploration of social issues. To this day it is considered the most political of all the major film festivals.
The Berlinale brings the big stars of international cinema to Berlin and discovers new talents. It accompanies filmmakers of all disciplines on their paths into the spotlight and supports careers, projects, dreams and visions.
Thanks to its numerous industry initiatives, the Berlinale is a significant driver of innovation and an important economic factor internationally as well as for companies in Germany and Berlin. NEXT FESTIVAL February 11 – 21, 2021
