Dieter Kosslick will not renew his contract, ending may 2019, as head of Berlinale


Festival Director Dieter Kosslick in response to a letter signed by a group of German directors concerning the future of the Berlinale:

“I can understand that these directors want transparency when it comes to the process of reforming the Berlinale. Its future is a matter of great importance for all us. Minister of State and Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media Prof. Monika Grütters will be in charge of any proceedings. 
My contract ends on May 31, 2019. The Supervisory Board has asked me to submit a proposal for the potential restructuring of the Berlinale. I will do so - and this proposal will be totally independent of me personally”.

German Culture Minister Monika Grütters is responsible for the selection of the next director of Berlin film festival.

79 german directors wrote a petition asking for transparency in the process, it was recently published in Der Spiegel.

"The Berlinale is one of the top three film festivals in the world, and the reorganization of the directorate offers the opportunity to programmatically renew and purify the festival, and we suggest that an international gender equality commission be set up The aim must be to find an outstanding curatorial personality who is passionate about cinema, well connected worldwide and capable of bringing the festival on an equal footing with Cannes and Venice into the future a transparent procedure and a new beginning."

German Culture Minister Monika Grütters is responsible for the selection of the next director of Berlin film festival.
