Community Contribution

Berlinale Talents wouldn't exist without all of you: our dedicated guests, friends, audiences and alumni. Thanks for staying with us and for considering the option to nurture your community financially too.

Since our founding twenty years ago, Berlinale Talents has always aimed to diminish the financial barriers for participants from low capacity countries. In doing so, we ensure that artistic and creative values are the only relevant criteria for selection, and uphold our core values of inclusivity and equality.

Your donation, whether monthly, quarterly or a single payment, helps us support the next generation of Talents to join the initiative, and to continue on our mission as gate openers to international networks, joint projects and shared visions.

Make a Contribution

Your donation is impactful - it sustains our mission both now and in the long run. As a non-profit organisation, we are allowed to provide a tax deductible donation receipt on your request. 2021 tax receipts will be provided automatically for donations of €200 or more.


What does your donation allow us to do?

Thank you for supporting Berlinale Talents. Your donation goes directly into our travel and accommodation grants for Talents in need. With participants invited from more than 70 countries and a wide scope of cultural and social backgrounds, Berlinale Talents strives for higher levels of equality, fairness and balance in the film community. From its founding times, the initiative has always aimed to diminish financial barriers for its participants from low capacity countries and thus make artistic and creative values the only relevant selection conditions. Additionally, your donation strengthens our year-round efforts to connect alumni and follow up on their ongoing projects.
