The international competitive strand for fiction feature debuts will shine a brighter spotlight on new filmmakers within the festival.

Perspectives emerges from the Best First Feature Award at the Berlinale, run in partnership with GWFF since 2006. A jury of three will decide which of the up to 14 fiction debuts will win the Best First Feature Award – funded by GWFF.

The section will offer a visible platform for exceptional emerging filmmakers from around the world. The features represent a genuinely international range of voices who have a bold and fluent cinematic language and offer arresting perspectives and new ways of seeing the world.
