Berlinale Talents: Mistakes

Supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Robert Bosch Stiftung, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union.

It’s hardly a mistake to question aspects of a beloved art. Members from this year’s diverse International Jury take time away from their duties to kick off this edition of Berlinale Talents. Actress Sandra Hüller, director Sebastián Lelio, Chief curator of Film at MoMA Rajenda Roy and film critic Justin Chang bring in the perspectives their different crafts can offer to face up to personal mishaps and the faults they’d like to see cleared up in the film world. Don’t let this chance for a collective catharsis go by as established figures of the filmic landscape delve into the forces behind their faults!

In Free Fall: Joys of Trial and Error

Developing ideas is a meandering process. Over the next ninety minutes, Talents alumnus David Lowery returns to the Berlinale with one delicate task in mind: unpicking his own thoughts and turning them into a shared imaginative journey. The indie star director of A Ghost Story and The Old Man & the Gun takes us on a trip through his creative processes by diving into the playlists, books and other artistic pieces that feed his cinematic work. Returning to the sources of our inspiration might just open new creative pathways. So follow the filmmaker who has chosen to wander off the beaten track!

Continental Drift: New Views on Africa

Neus Ballús, Perivi Katjavivi, Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese, Tiny Mungwe
moderated by Dorothee Wenner
Supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.

What’s right and wrong, it’s sometimes said, is a matter of perception. The diverse voices of filmmakers are strong within the Talents alums group and this event delves into the work of Berlinale filmmakers and artists from Lesotho, South Africa and Spain to trigger debate. Dislocated views of the continent allow us to question what counts as “African” anew and thereby interrogate how misrepresentations sharpen our critical senses. We therefore set out to discuss changing perceptions and question contradictory representations, which drift in and out of Africa.

Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung: Award Ceremony

Hosted by Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Crossing borders and finding common ground is essential both to international relations and filmmaking. The Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports German-Arab film cooperations between filmmakers and producers working jointly on a project. The prize is open to teams made up of filmmakers from Germany and an Arab country and awards three prizes: in the categories of short animation, short fiction film, and short or feature length documentary, with workshops and EUR 60,000 in funding each. We are glad to celebrate the winners and a generation of filmmakers willing to push boundaries together. The ceremony opens with the screening of the 2017 winning short film Tshweesh, followed by a Q&A with the team.

Kill Your Darlings

Susan Korda

“Good editing is like good sex,” affirms editor and director Susan Korda (The Darkest Days). “You create an expectation in your audience – and then you fulfil it.” Tracing finished film scenes from Bonnie and Clyde and Jaws back to the initial “Oh, shit!” experience in the editing room, Korda reveals how the magic of brave editing can create a gratifying cinematic experience from what initially appears to be a collection of mistakes. Sharing tools learnt from Walter Murch and Michael Rabiger, Susan demystifies the editing room and demonstrates how to “kill your darlings,” the critical ability to surrender preconceived preferences. Yelling “Cut!” never felt so good.


19:30 - 22:30
