Every February the Berlinale Talent Campus brings 300 selected talents (writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, actors, editors, distributors, production designers, composers, sound designers and young film journalists) together with professionals from the international film industry. This vital platform has developed into one of the most exciting initiatives at the Berlinale and has led to many success stories of films made by Campus alumni, which can increasingly be enjoyed in the Berlinale film programme. Located in the close proximity of the festival centre and the European Film Market, the Campus hosts many events with Berlinale guests, renowned filmmakers and Campus alumni in the three venues of the HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
Besides the fruitful association of established filmmakers with the award-winners of tomorrow, the Berlinale Talent Campus offers tailored coaching in all areas of film-making. Furthermore, the development of selected film projects is supported during and after the Campus. These projects are also presented in the Campus Online Community.
The Campus continuously cooperates with the Berlinale Co-Production Market. In the framework of the “Talent Project Market”, selected projects by Campus participants are presented to producers and financiers.
