Become a Friend
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. You can help 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.
