Film Selection 2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 71st Berlin International Film Festival’s format has been altered.

The majority of the selected films was available for viewing online by industry representatives and accredited members of the press during the Industry Event from March 1 to 5, 2021.

The Berlinale is currently exploring the possibility of an all-outdoor event for the Summer Special, June 9 to 20 and is in close contact with the authorities to determine the next steps. Everyone's health and curbing the development of the pandemic is, of course, the top priority when making any considerations.

Please see the press release for information regarding the postponement of the Retrospective and Forum Expanded programmes.

The detailed programme for the Berlinale Summer Special will be available at Berlinale Programme in the run-up to the event.
