It will be face-to-face but with a reduced number of seats

BERLIN (EFE).— The Berlinale will take place as a face-to-face event, albeit under strict public conditions and in a reduced format due to the pandemic, while some sections and the European Film Market will take place exclusively digitally.

The Berlin Film Festival will “strictly” respect the new rules imposed by the German authorities, Berlinale sources said in a statement.

This means only those vaccinated with the full policy and presenting a recent negative Covid-19 test will be able to access cinemas where the use of a mask is required.

The format of the festival will be different from the usual: it will open on February 10 as planned, but only the films from both the official competition section and the other sections will be presented until February 16, when they will be delivered to Bears and Others official prices.

The day before, the 15th, there will be a special tribute gala to French actress Isabelle Huppert, who will be awarded the Honorary Golden Bear for her entire career.

This shortens the presentation phase of the films with the corresponding teams to six instead of the usual ten days. In the last four days, the films will be exchanged in publicly accessible sessions.

with little shine

The capacity of the rooms will be reduced to 50% of their capacity. There will be no parties or celebrations, but the red carpet will be laid out for directors, actors and international guests, who will also offer the appropriate press conferences during the first six days of the festival.

“We want to make the Berlinale shine and from today’s perspective we believe that we will succeed,” said the Minister of Culture, the Green Claudia Roth.

With the celebration of the festival, the aim is to send “a sign of vitality” to both the industry and the public, according to the head of culture in the government of Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

Unlike other European rivals such as the Cannes and Venice festivals, the Berlinale has always been open to the public. In the normal editions, up to 300,000 places are offered for sale for all sections including the premieres of the films in competition.

“With this format, it becomes possible to celebrate a festival in which both the audience and the film crews present are present,” said the co-directors of the Berlinale, Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.

The complete program of the festival, including the competition films, will be shown on September 19.

After the hybrid edition of 2021, the Berlinale will regain some of its face-to-face character.
