The Berlin International Film Festival (German : Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin), usually called the Berlinale (German pronunciation: [bɛʁliˈnaːlə] ( Loudspeaker.svg listen )), is a major international film festival held annually in Berlin, Germany. Founded in 1951 and originally run in June, the festival has been held every February since 1978 and is one of the "Big Three" alongside the Venice Film Festival in Italy and the Cannes Film Festival in France. Tens of thousands of visitors attend each year.

Contents

About 400 films are shown at multiple venues across Berlin, mostly in and around Potsdamer Platz. They are screened in nine sections across cinematic genres, with around twenty films competing for the festival's top awards in the Competition section. The major awards, called the Golden Bear and Silver Bears, are decided on by the international jury, chaired by an internationally recognisable cinema personality. This jury and other specialised Berlinale juries also give many other awards, and in addition there are other awards given by independent juries and organisations.

The European Film Market (EFM), a film trade fair held simultaneously to the Berlinale, is a major industry meeting for the international film circuit. The trade fair serves distributors, film buyers, producers, financiers and co-production agents. The Berlinale Talents, a week-long series of lectures and workshops, is a gathering of young filmmakers held in partnership with the festival.

First festival

During the peak of the Cold War in 1950, Oscar Martay, a film officer of the Information Service Branch of the American High Commissioner for Germany stationed in Berlin, proposed the idea of a film festival in Berlin. [1] [2] [3] [4] The proposal was put through a committee, which included members of the Senate of Berlin and people from the German film industry, on 9 October 1950. [4] Through his efforts and influence, the American military administration was persuaded to assist and to give loans for the first years of the Berlin International Film Festival, which commenced in June 1951. [4] [1] [5] Film historian Dr. Alfred Bauer was the festival's first director, a position he would hold until 1976. [6]

Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca opened the first festival at the Titiana-Palast in Steglitz on 6 June 1951. The festival ran from 6 to 17 June, [7] with Waldbühne being another festival venue. [7] [4]

The winners of the inaugural awards in 1951 were determined by a West German panel, and there were five winners of the Golden Bear, divided by categories and genres. [8] Cinderella , which won the Golden Bear for a Music Film, [9] also won the audience award. [7]

Early years and awards

The FIAPF (Fédération Internationale des Associations de Producteurs de Films) banned the awarding of jury prizes at the festival, [7] so between 1952 and 1955, the winners of the Golden Bear were determined by the audience members. [10] In 1956, FIAPF formally accredited the festival [7] and since then the Golden Bear has been awarded by an international jury. [10]

During the Cold War, a selection of the films were also screened in East Berlin. [11] The Berlin Wall did not go up until 1961. [1]

In 1957, the Zoo Palast became the main venue for the festival, and remained so until the move to Potsdamer Platz in 2000 (see Venues below). [1]

1970s

The 20th edition of the festival in 1970 was cut short and awards not issued following controversy over the showing of Michael Verhoeven's anti-war film o.k. . [7] The jury, headed by American film director George Stevens, decided after a 7–2 vote to remove the film from the competition, justifying their decision by citing a FIAPF guideline that said: "All film festivals should contribute to better understanding between nations". Stevens claimed that the film, which includes a gang rape of a Vietnamese woman by American soldiers during the Vietnam War, was anti-American. [12] One jury member, Dušan Makavejev, protested against this measure, stood up for the film and supported Verhoeven and producer Rob Houwer. [13] Verhoeven defended his film by stating in these terms: "I have not made an anti-American film... The biggest part of the American people today is against the war in Vietnam". [14] Other directors taking part in the festival withdrew their films in protest, and the jury was accused of censorship and eventually disbanded, so no prizes were awarded and the competition was suspended. [15]

This scandal had such a big effect that it was unclear if the festival would continue to take place the next year. [16] The following year, the festival was re-formed and a new International Forum for New Cinema was created. [7]

Bauer was succeeded by film journalist Wolf Donner in 1976, [17] who gave German films higher priority. [7] After his first Berlinale in June 1977, Donner successfully negotiated the shift of the festival from the June to February (22 February – 5 March 1978), a change which has remained ever since. [18]

That festival, the 28th edition, saw the jury award the Golden Bear to Spain for its contribution to the festival rather than a specific film. [7] The three Spanish films which were screened at the festival and won it were short film Ascensor directed by Tomás Muñoz and feature films La palabras de Max by Emilio Martínez Lázaro and Las truchas by José Luis García Sánchez. [19] The 1978 festival also saw the start of the European Film Market. [7]

1980–2000

After only three years in the role, Donner was followed by Moritz de Hadeln, who held the position from 1980 [20] until director Dieter Kosslick took over in 2001. [21]

21st century

Kosslick started making some changes to the festival, moving the emphasis from Hollywood in order to focus more on German and international cinema. He introduced various events to assist the development of emerging talent in German cinema. [1]

In 2010, for the 60th edition of the festival, Werner Herzog was appointed president of the jury. Also in that year, the city of Berlin unveiled its Boulevard of the Stars  [ de ], with the first of 40 stars devoted to actors and filmmakers of the German-speaking film and TV industry. First to be honoured in the Boulevard was German-American actress Marlene Dietrich. [1]

In 2012 the 100th anniversary of the historic Studio Babelsberg was celebrated at the 62nd edition of the festival, with the screening of 10 classic films made at the studios. [1]

A new Series section, devoted to longform television series, was introduced in 2015. [22]

In June 2018, it was announced that Mariette Rissenbeek would serve as the new executive director alongside artistic director Carlo Chatrian. They assumed their posts after Kosslick's final edition in 2019. Rissenbeek became the first woman to lead the Berlinale. [23] [24]

A shortened 71st festival took place virtually in March 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [25] [26]

Description and governance

The Berlinale is considered one of the three major film festivals in the world, alongside the Venice and Cannes, [27] [28] often ranked as second after Cannes, and is the largest based on attendance. As of 2020, around 325,000 tickets were sold, and nearly 16,000 film industry professionals from 130 countries attended the festival. [1] It is held in Berlin. [29] It attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. For the 2022 event, still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, 156,472 tickets were sold. [30]

About 400 films are shown in several sections across cinematic genres, with around twenty films competing for the festival's top awards, the Golden Bear and Silver Bears. [30]

In 2022, festival was receiving €10.3 million from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. There was consideration given by the federal government to help compensate for revenue lost and additional expenditure owing to the pandemic, with funds drawn from the Neustart Kultur programme. [30]

Since 2019, Mariette Rissenbeek has been the festival's executive director; Carlo Chatrian is its artistic director. [31]

Entries

The festival is open to films of every length and genre, but there is priority given to international and European premieres, and the films need to have been completed within the year preceding the festival. Submissions open in September of the preceding year. [32]

The Golden Bear (Goldener Bär) is the highest prize awarded for the best film at the Berlin International Film Festival. In its first year in 1951, it was awarded to the best film in each of five categories, [43] by an all-German jury. [44]

From 1952 to 1955 the Golden and Silver Bears were awarded by audience voting, as the FIAPF had determined after the first festival that only Cannes and Venice Film Festivals were allowed to appoint official juries. [43] [45] A Silver Bear (Silberner Bär) and a Bronze Berlin Bear, determined by audience vote, were also awarded from 1952 to 1955. [46] [47] After the FIAPF ruled to allow it, an official international jury determined the prizes from 1956 onwards, [43] and in the same year a second Golden Bear was added, for best short film, as well as a second category of award, the Silver Bear, for individual achievements in acting or directing. In 1965, a runner-up prize to the Golden Bear was added. [44]

The statuettes awarded as trophies are based on the Bär first created by sculptor Renée Sintenis (1888–1965) in 1932. The bear, based on the coat of arms of Berlin and depicting a bear standing on its hind legs with its arms raised, became popular in the 1930s, bringing wealth to Sintenis. Since the 3rd edition of the festival in 1953, replicas of the bear have been produced by the Noack Foundry. [48] [49]

International jury prizes

The main prizes in the festival are those awarded by the international jury since 1956, which today include the Golden Bear and various Silver Bears. [50] In 1956, apart from the Golden Bear, there were also Silver Bears awarded by the new international feature film jury for best director, best actress, best actor, best outstanding single achievement, outstanding artistic contribution, and an Silver Bear International Prize. [51]

As of 2022 the Golden Bear for Best Film is awarded to the producers of the best feature film. [50]

As of 2022 the categories of Silver Bear awards are: [50]

Other Berlinale awards

The Honorary Golden Bear has been awarded for lifetime achievement since 1982, when it was awarded to James Stewart. [52] [53] It is presented to someone with an exceptional artistic career, and is given to the guest of honour of the Homage section [54] which has been run since 1977 by the Berlinale and the Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen. [42]

Awards for short films are awarded by a separate international short film jury consisting of three filmmakers and artists. As of 2022 the short film award are: [55]

There are also awards given by separate juries or via other routes at the Berlinale. These include:

European Film Market

The European Film Market (EFM) is a large trade fair for marketing films, which grew from an event started in 1978. [7] [100]

Filmmesse was an event led by Aina Bellis from 1980 to 1987, being succeeded by Beki Probst in 1988. From 2014 to October 2020, Matthijs Wouter Knol took over the position. In November 2020, Dennis Ruh became the director of the EFM. [101]

It has grown into one of three largest movie markets in the world, and is the first film market of the year; [102] the Marché du Film in Cannes follows in May, and the American Film Market in November.[ citation needed ]

EFM provides exhibition space for companies presenting their current line-up, organising screenings of new films in venues around Potsdamer Platz. In 2007, the CinemaxX and CineStar were used to showcase new productions. In 2010, the Astor Film Lounge showed market screenings in three dimensions using digital RealD technology.[ citation needed ]

It is a professional trade event, open to registered industry insiders, hosting up to 10,000 representatives of the international film and media industries (mostly producers, sales agents, distributors and financiers). [102] In 2020, 971 screenings of 732 registered movies took place, with 525 films celebrating their premiere. [103] Taking place over eight days, the event is spread across several locations, including the Gropius Bau, Marriott Hotel, modern Berliner Freiheit  [ de ] or the historic Zoo Palast. [102]

Berlinale Talents

Commencing in 2003, the Berlinale has partnered with the Berlinale Talents (previously Berlinale Talent Campus), which is a winter school for "up-and-coming filmmakers" that takes place at the same time as the festival. The Talent Campus accepts about 250 applicants each year; the attendees come from around the world, and represent all of the filmmaking professions. [104] [44]

The event runs six days during the Berlinale and features lectures and panel discussions with well-known professionals addressing issues in filmmaking. Workshops, excursions, personal tutoring, coaching, and training of participants from different fields of work are part of the programme. [105]

The proceedings include presentations by experts, [106] who have included Park Chan-wook, Frances McDormand, Stephen Frears, Dennis Hopper, Jia Zhangke, Walter Murch, Shah Rukh Khan, Joshua Oppenheimer, Anthony Minghella, Charlotte Rampling, Walter Salles, Ridley Scott, Raoul Peck, Tom Tykwer, Mike Leigh, Tilda Swinton, and Wim Wenders.[ citation needed ] Many of these presentations and lectures are archived, both as video recordings and as transcripts, on the Talents website. [107]

Berlinale Co-Production Market

The Berlinale Co-Production Market is a five-day networking platform for producers and financiers, as well as broadcasting and funding representatives who are participating in international co-productions. [108] It was introduced by Dieter Kosslick in the 2000s. [35]

Jury presidents

Since 1956, the jury of the Festival has been chaired by an internationally recognised personality of cinema, [109] except in 2021, when the directors of six previous Golden-Bear-winning films determined the awards for the Competition of the 71st Berlinale. [110] [111]

World Cinema Fund

The World Cinema Fund (WCF) is associated with the Berlinale, and was established to provide financial support to feature film projects in countries with a weak film industry infrastructure. [32] [112] It was established by Dieter Kosslick [35] in 2004 to support films "that stand out with an unconventional aesthetic approach, that tell powerful stories and transmit an authentic image of their cultural roots". It awards several projects in various stages of production with funding each year. [113]

The WCF is a collaboration with the Federal Foundation for Culture, and awarded in cooperation with the Goethe Institute, the Foreign Ministry and German producers. It aims "to develop and support cinema in regions with a weak film infrastructure, while fostering cultural diversity in German cinemas", and supports films that could not be made without extra funding. It provides funding for production and distribution of feature films and feature-length documentaries, with a focus on countries in Latin America, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Caucasus, as well as Bangladesh, Nepal, Mongolia, and Sri Lanka. [114]

Films receiving funding from the WCF have included: [114]
