How To Apply

Would you like to join the Berlinale Talents community? Find out all you need to know about eligibility and applications here.

Berlinale Talents is the talent development programme of the Berlin International Film Festival, with project development labs taking place digitally in late January and an onsite summit with panels, discussions and networking opportunities during the Berlinale each February.

Berlinale Talents is aimed at film and television professionals with an existing track record of work. We are currently open to film actors, audience designers (i.e. curators, cinema or festival makers), composers, cinematographers, directors, distributors, editors, film critics, producers, production designers, sales agents, screenwriters, sound designers and, digital set designers.

Talent comes with the responsibility to share, and our entire programme, from the Summit events to the Studios and project development labs, is focused not just on what the experts have to offer, but what our Talents can bring to the group too. Each and everyone’s input and the interaction among the participants drive the sessions forward and are a valuable addition to the tapestry of the six days.

Please find out if you are eligible and get a quick overview of the application process for the summit and our project development labs below.
