Berlinale 2009 Post Script

user
Dieter Kosslick's comment that “Reality has actually surpassed fiction this year” fits rather well the 2009 edition of the Berlinale. Kosslick has directed the Berlinale since 2001 and helped to elevate it to rank with Cannes and Venice as one of three most important global film festivals. His take on the Berlinale as being political has often been criticized yet not detracted from the importance of the festival. The opening film THE INTERNATIONAL by Tom Twyker about the criminal activities...

Thoughts on Berlinale 2008 Expanded Forum

user
For cineastes and critics, the Berlin International Film Festival, or Berlinale, is a frequent target of criticism, since it is argued that the official competition has become subverted by commercialism, that politics drives the final selection in the official competition, or that Dieter Kosslick’s craving for media attention prevails. Thus the chorus of nay sayers grew more intense this year. After all, having the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and Sharukh Khan on the red carpet and bestowing the ...

Christoph Terhechte: about his Berlinale Forum

Christoph Terhechte who had worked since 1997 with Ulrich Gregor, one of the co-founders of the Forum, assumed direction of the ...

Kosslick : Berlinale beyond the Talent Campus

user
Berlinale .. BEYOND THE TALENT CAMPUSKosslick prefers the term broadening (breiter machen) to enlarging (vergroessern) when discussing the rapid expansion of the Berlinale and the addition of new festival components. The European Film Market (EFM) grew by thirty percent and included this year more than 200 companies and more than 810 market screenings with close to forty percent of the EFM films also shown in other sections of the Berlinale. Thus EFM’s claim to presenting upscale quality comme...
