As an international technology company, Mastercard ensures that payments are processed securely and smartly worldwide. Mastercard has been a co-partner of the Berlin International Film Festival since 2015. At this year's Berlinale, the company is particularly committed to diversity and inclusion. After all, films can help sharpen people's view of the world around them and eliminate stereotypical role models. To promote diversity on the big screen, the company will make a donation for every ticket purchase with Mastercard at the Berlinale. As a partner of the talent development initiative Berlinale Talents, Mastercard also supports 200 selected creative professionals from 14 different disciplines across the film industry.

With the start of the film festival, the Theater am Potsdamer Platz transforms into the Berlinale Palast and the entire neighborhood welcomes filmmakers, stars and fans from all over the world. With the reopening of The Playce, the Quartier now once again offers shopping and entertainment, as well as art and cultural experiences for visitors. We are looking forward to our festival time together.
