The Minister of State for Culture and the Media (BKM), Claudia Roth, is responsible for the German government's cultural and media-related affairs. Film support constitutes a central aspect of the BKM’s media policy - providing the legal and political framework for the German film industry and filmmakers, preserving the country’s film heritage, fostering the federal government’s economic and cultural support for the film industry and maintaining international relationships in the world of film.
As a globally renowned platform for filmmaking talent, Berlinale Talents exemplifies the idea of international cultural exchange and long-term support for cinema and its creative practitioners. We look forward to working together again in 2023.

In 2022, Minister of State for Culture and the Media Claudia Roth joined us for the first time and delivered an inspiring message of encouragement for Berlinale Talents, all our participants, the festival as a whole and beyond, a clarion call for culture.
The BKM social media team also met virtually with a number of our alumni from the last 20 years of Berlinale Talents and created this wonderful birthday compilation for us.
The BKM social media team visited us in 2020 for the following interviews with alumna Leonie Krippendorff, whose Script Station project "Cocoon" opened Berlinale Generation that year, and with two of the 2020 participants, Maka Gogaladze from Georgia and Dominic Sangma from India.
