Berlinale Talents 2019

Berlinale Talents is the talent development programme of the Berlin International Film Festival. It combines a programme of public events with workshops specifically designed for 250 emerging filmmakers from all over the world and across 12 disciplines. 

Dates: 9-14 February, 2019
Of the 250 participants, forty are selected for four Project Labs (the Doc Station, Script Station, Short Film Station and Talent Project Market) which allow them to further develop and publicly present their latest projects. Many of these films go on to win international awards and accolades. The programme is open to directors, producers, actors, screenwriters, cinematographers, editors, production designers, film critics, sales agents, distributors, composers and sound designers in the early stages of their careers.

Berlinale Talents 2019

How to fail better: In its 17th year, Berlinale Talents was on the lookout for mistakes. From February 9 to 14, 2019, altogether 250 Talents, some 130 experts and mentors, and the Berlin audience reported on situations on which they stumbled in their creative process, leading them to have to take different paths from those originally intended. The aim was not only to talk about how to deal productively with minor mistakes and major catastrophes. The approximately 100 workshops, talks, and film discussions also focused on the deliberate decision to “do things wrong” as an aesthetic experiment, a creative force of renewal, and a wilful rebellion of art against the norm.
