DW (Deutsche Welle) is Germany’s international broadcaster and has supported Berlinale Talents since the very beginning. Every year, a team of editorial and technical trainees comes from DW headquarter to cover Berlinale Talents with a series of featurettes about participating filmmakers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines. The trainees research, conduct and edit these interviews themselves during their week-long sojourn at Berlinale Talents, and often end up staying in touch with the participating Talents.
The portraits offer a fascinating insight into the kaleidoscope of creative approaches and perspectives represented at Berlinale Talents. You can watch a selection of videos below and even more on the DW Trainee Vimeo channel.
In 2021, they also caught up with some of the Talents they have created portraits of through the years, seeing where their paths have taken them and the successes that have followed. Watch here.
