Berlinale at
We Are One: A Global Film Festival

In order to display solidarity in the midst of the corona crisis, numerous film festivals will participate in the 'We Are One' initiative.

It is with great regret that we are following the harrowing news each day. Cinemas have been shuttered, events, film releases and festivals postponed or cancelled, and all film shoots put on hold. The Berlinale’s entire raison d'être is the cinema film and the exhibitions by artists working in these formats as well as the collaboration with those who work to ensure the films are given a platform after the festival. The Berlinale thrives on the audience’s enthusiasm for cinema film, which is presently facing grave difficulties in every aspect.

We would like to extend our sympathy to all artists, festival colleagues, cinema operators, distributors and producers. We believe in cinema as a social space that will not lose its power even in the face of the virus.
