Telefilm Canada is a long-term partner of Berlinale Talents and has supported our networking events for many years. In 2022, Telefilm hosted one of our Talents Tanks, a new, inspiring networking and design thinking format. In five consecutive online modules and with input from the Berlinale Talents partners and guests, the Tanks aim to methodically examine and condense visions of the future in order to subsequently make them accessible to the industry and a wider public. On a personal level, the Talents, partners and guests experience the Talents Tanks as a place of open-minded exchange à la Berlinale. They leave the space encouraged to work on the tasks, but also with methods to approach that change realistically in their own practice. The goal is to develop and present prototypes for the future with potential to realise them locally and globally. The sessions were recorded live by graphic designer Sophia Paeslack. More about the Structure and Results of the inspiring five-day-journey of the Talents Tanks here.
