Berlinale Press Service

The Press Conference for the 71st Berlin International Film Festival will be held in the Berlinale Palast on January 20, 2021, at 11.00 am and is reserved for invited members of the press.

Dear Journalist

The Berlinale Press Office is the point-of-contact for all media representatives, year round, and located at Potsdamer Platz.

During the festival itself, the Press Office moves into the Grand Hyatt Berlin and operates the Press Centre, where most of the festival press services can be found. The Press Centre is located on the first floor of the Grand Hyatt Berlin, directly opposite the Berlinale Palast. There you will find the press conference room and the individual departments of the Press Office.

Due to the COVID-19 regulations, some service facilities (including the Photo Call, the WiFi Lounge and the press writing room respectively) will be relocated in 2021. More detailed information will be announced soon.

The Press Office is happy to provide information and answer any questions you may have. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we recommend to use contactless communication tools (e-mail, phone). Needless to say, you can also reach us on-site at the Press Centre.
