71st Berlinale Industry Event
The 71st Berlin International Film Festival is made up of two stages: The Industry Event in March and the Summer Special in June.
The Industry Event provided the film business world and national and international press with a platform for exchange, and was very well-received by all participants. Notably, the film selection itself and updates such as the presentation of gender neutral awards received very positive feedback.
The Summer Special, from June 9 - 20, will at last give Berlin general audiences the opportunity to see this year’s programme as well. Due to the pandemic, the Summer Special will take place in outdoor cinemas only.
The following quotes by international and national media provide an overview of the reactions to the Industry Event in March. The Berlinale is looking forward to hearing the audience's response to the Summer Special festival activities on location.
