Press Feedback 71st Berlinale
The 71st Berlin International Film Festival took place in two stages, comprising the Industry Event in March and the Summer Special in June.
The Industry Event provided a platform for exchange for the film industry and the national and international press and garnered very positive responses from all those involved. The film selection itself and innovations such as the presentation of gender-neutral awards received particularly positive feedback.
The Summer Special from June 9 to 20 finally gave Berlinale audiences the opportunity to see the films from this year’s selection. Due to the pandemic, the Summer Special took place exclusively in open-air cinemas.
The following quotes from international and national media provide an overview of how the Industry Event in March and the Berlinale Summer Special in June were received.
