Covid-19 Information

The festival is delighted to welcome you to the 73rd edition here in Berlin. After two editions marked by the pandemic, the 2023 festival is taking place as an in-person event so that the audience, industry professionals, press and the films’ casts and crews can meet again physically and experience the festival together.

The current official guidelines do not prescribe any specific hygiene measures. However, to ensure the health and safety of all our visitors, ticket sales are again taking place exclusively online in 2023. All Berlinale venues are equipped with modern ventilation systems which comply with legal standards. During the festival, the premises will also be cleaned at regular and higher-frequency intervals and will be equipped with sanitiser dispensers. In order to protect everyone present, we request that you refrain from attending the festival if you have any cold-like symptoms. We also recommend that you wash and sanitise your hands regularly and wear an FFP2 mask.
