The entire program, pretty please!

"Which film is recommended?"; "Which block should I watch?" - There is only one answer to all those frequently asked questions: Who doesn't watch the entire selection has missed the most interesting part!

Short Talks shoots inside the Berlinale Palast

We interviewed the team behind "The man that got away" at a very special location. While the crowds were gathering around the red carpet to catch a glimpse of the arriving celebrities, we entered the Berlinale Palast through an employee entrance. After passing some security checks we were ready to set up our gear inside one of the Berlinale's official interview rooms.

Adventurous Interview

Since our last blog entry we have seen many films and scheduled several meetings but yesterday we shot this year's first interview. Needless to say, hardly anything went the way we meticulously planned beforehand.

Snapshots 2012

Red bears, moviegoers and... Meryl Streep. Our new Berlinale 2012 photo gallery shows these snapshots and even more. Steal a glance at the Short's office - a room decorated with posters and big schedules on the walls.
