The detailed programme for the Summer Special, which will include most of the 2021 Film Selection, will be released on May 20.
The open-air format unfortunately does not allow for presentations of 35mm prints. For this reason, the Retrospective of the 2021 Berlinale, which is based largely on classic film footage, has been postponed until the 2022 edition of the festival.
The Forum Expanded exhibition scheduled to open on May 18 at SAVVY Contemporary in Berlin has been cancelled for 2021. The artist group The Living and the Dead Ensemble will instead show from May 18 in the windows of SAVVY Contemporary from May 18. The works selected for the 2021 Forum Expanded will be presented next year.
