The 74th Berlinale Is Almost Ready For Its Start

February brings back one of the best world-known cinematic events - the 74th Berlin International Film Festival or Berlinale. From February 15 to February 25 Berlin will become a centre of artistic exploration and entertainment.

Of course, the focus, as usual, is on the Competition programme, which is the festival's centrepiece mostly talked about with Golden and Silver Bears in the spotlight. According to the Berlinale's press release, "20 films will compete for the Golden and Silver Bears, among them two first features as well as two documentary forms. Productions from 30 countries are represented. 19 films are world premieres. Six films were directed or co-directed by women. Nine filmmakers have been at the festival before, six in Competition."

As told by Carlo Chatrian, Artistic Director of the Festival, "We are particularly proud of this year’s selection which achieves the best possible balance between auteurs we cherish and admire and powerful new voices in the independent cinema landscape. What drives the selection is of course the variety of the stories and their storytellers, but also and even more so the plurality of styles with the goal of showing the extensive possibilities of cinema language.”
