Support our Talents

We believe that artistic and creative values are the only criteria that should affect someone's ability to take part in Berlinale Talents. That's why, since we started out twenty years ago, we have aimed to help overcome the financial barriers for participants from low capacity countries. By making a donation, you can help us support the next generation of Talents to join the initiative and uphold our core values of inclusivity and equality.
