Berlinale 2012 poster

The 62nd Berlin International Film Festival will take place from February 9 to 19, 2012. As of mid January the poster for the Berlinale 2012 will add a bright note to the winter cityscape - first around the Potsdamer Platz and then all over Berlin. The motif on the poster will also appear on many of the Festival's publications. "The Berlinale Bear is both a trademark and a popular symbol. The colourful v

Berlin, weather and the fading landmarks of memory lane

user
The weather this Berlinale has been more or less "as usual" -- chilly, around freezing every day, a few snowflakes in the air, and brightly overcast -- no sunshine, but bright cloudy days casting a bright silver haze on the cobblestone meadows of Potsdamer Platz -- the kind of bracing weather that makes one happy to be inside a warm cinema rather than out on a tempting beach ... like at Cannes, Venice, or San Sebastian. Berlinale veterans --which means anyone who was here before...

Berlinale, one poster, one B, one motif...for the entire Berlinale

user
The poster for the Berlinale 2010 was created by designers of Berlin-based "Büro Otto Sauhaus". Just like in the last years, a single motif represents the entire Berlinale.   The 2011 Berlinale poster, which has a big "B" at its centre, will first be on display at Potsdamer Platz. Starting mid-January it will be visible all over Berlin. What's more, the poster's motif will adorn many of the Festival's publications. "‘B' stands for the Berlinale as well as Ber...

Berlinale 2007, Dieter Kosslick’s Reflections part 1

user

Berlinale 2007: It's a Wrap

user
The Berlin International Film Festival has long reflected the character of its bohemian host city. Think avant-garde filmmaking in the Forum section; gay-themed pictures in Panorama; and the political polemic popular among competition directors, including this time, the Holocaust film, The Counterfeiters.This year’s festival (February 8th-18th, 2007), however, went one step further, taking fest-goers back in time to a bygone era of cinema and the city’s golden age. The opening film La Vie En...

One City, Two Legends

Thursday, February 8----Two legends collided in one city tonight as the Berlin International Film Festival began this evening. For one night only, Edith Piaf waltzed with Marlene Dietrich on the steps of the Berlinale Palast, in the heart of the "new Berlin" Potsdamer Platz. Of course, the two, most deceased, were not dancing in the flesh. But when the music of Edith Piaf, as captured in the Berlinale Opening Night Film LA VIE EN ROSE, spilled onto the streets of Marlene Dietrich Platz, two l...
