Berlin Film Residencies
Initiated by Medienboard, the Nipkow Programm and the Berlinale, the Berlin Film Residencies portal offers an overview of various scholarships available to filmmakers in and from Berlin: the Berlin Artist-in-Residence (Berlin AiR) programme, Nipkow Programm, and the Haus am See scholarship. International filmmakers can learn about opportunities in and around Berlin, while creatives based in the capital region can discover work scholarships abroad.
Many Berlinale Talents alumni have gone on to receive a residency in Berlin. In fact, our alumni can simply log into their existing Berlinale Talents online profile to apply for the Berlin Film Residencies. Here is what some of our alums had to say about their experiences:
Berlinale Talents 2010 and Berlin AiR fellow 2018
“My summer in Tel Aviv left such a strong impression on me. It was so exciting to be there. I absorbed experiences and encounters that also helped my project. It’s super that Medienboard funds all these opportunities for filmmakers to expand their horizons and spend time in different places around the world.”
Berlinale Talents 2018 and Nipkow Programm 2018
“Nipkow is a very embracing environment. The staff members go out of their way to make us feel welcome, supported and instantly part of their Nipkow family.”
