Berlin International Film Festival

Affectionately known as the Berlinale, this is one of the world's most prestiges film festivals and one of Germany's top media events.

Dating back to 1978 and with nearly half a million admissions last year, the Berlinale is considered the world's largest film festival. Around 400 works and films are generally displayed to visitors, with a much smaller number actually competing for the much coveted Golden Bear award in mid-February each year.


For two weeks in February, the German capital enjoys a break from gloomy winter with a showcase of film, art, glamour and parties bringing a huge buzz when the Berlinale is staged across the city.
