Avant garde, experimental works, essays, long-term observations, political reportage and yet-to-be-discovered cinematic landscapes: the International Forum of New Cinema, Forum in short, is the most daring section of the Berlinale.
There are few formal limitations when it comes to the selection of films, resulting in even greater freedom. Documentaries and feature films are given equal consideration. The films in the Forum straddle the line between art and cinema.
In 2006 Forum Expanded was launched. Presenting film, video, installation and performative works on varying themes and in multiple venues across Berlin, works in Forum Expanded provide a critical perspective and an expanded sense of cinematography.
