Berlinale Talent Campus will address the theme "Cinema Needs Talent: Looking for the Right People".

From February 13-18, 2010, the Berlinale Talent Campus will open its doors at the Theater Hebbel am Ufer and welcome 350 young filmmakers from all over the world during the Berlin International Film Festival.

The eighth Berlinale Talent Campus will address the theme "Cinema Needs Talent: Looking for the Right People". For many filmmakers, teaming up with the right people to inspire and support them and to create a collective vision is the essential element of successful filmmaking. The upcoming Berlinale Talent Campus will tap into these thoughts and ask how the development of personal craftsmanship and the experience of choosing the right people intertwine to build gainful long-term creative collaborations. "Teamwork is the key to success. It's about daring to ask the vital questions together in order to exceed your own limits and to keep that one essential goal in sight: to make a great film. This theme also reflects the Campus, which has, since the beginning, strived to connect young international filmmakers with their colleagues and established professionals, always in the spirit of encouraging collaborative filmmaking", says Programme Manager Matthijs Wouter Knol.


The application deadline for the Berlinale Talent Campus #8 is October 7, 2009. Producers, directors, actors, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, production designers, film composers, sound designers, film journalists and visual artists from all over the world are invited to apply online through the Campus website,

The Campus application also includes applications for the numerous additional hands-on training programmes: Talent Press, Score Competition, Doc- and Script Station, Talent Project Market, Campus Studio and Berlin Today Award.


2nd Talent Campus Durban, South Africa

The second edition of Talent Campus Durban will take place from 24-28 July, 2009, during the 30th Durban International Film Festival. For five days, young African filmmakers will examine the theoretical and practical approaches to filmmaking under the motto "Roots and Shoots: Creating a New African Cinema". Particular focus will be given to developing new partnerships within the African filmmaking world. "We are very happy about the success of the Campus Abroad projects that we've organised in cooperation with film festivals in Durban, Sarajevo, Guadalajara and Buenos Aires. The Berlinale Talent Campus is one of the Berlinale's strongest exports," says Campus Project Manager Christine Tröstrum. More information is available at:

The Berlinale Talent Campus is an initiative of the Berlin International Film Festival, a business division of the Kulturveranstaltungen des Bundes in Berlin GmbH, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media upon a decision of the German Bundestag, in co-operation with MEDIA - Training programme of the European Union, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg as well as Skillset and UK Film Council
