The mobility platform Uber will be Principal Partner of the Berlinale and supports the festival in the realisation of the VIP shuttle to bring film teams and festival guests to the Red Carpet. For the practical realisation, Uber cooperates with a local car rental partner, through which the required capacity of vehicles and drivers will be provided. For the 73rd edition, all limousines for the Berlinale VIP shuttle will be powered by modern and sustainable hydrogen technology for the first time and will therefore be emission-free. Uber is also planning numerous activities to make it easier for Berlinale audiences to get to the venues and back home.
