Animation talents to participate in Berlinale Talents 2018

// Business, Featured, News

Each year Berlinale Talents, an initiative of the esteemed Berlinale Festival, invites film industry talent to apply for the opportunity to meet with and learn from one another, the public and industry professionals over a six day period. For the 250 selected the opportunity serves to “critically question their own artistic standpoint and to further develop their film projects”.

Taking place in the three venues of the HAU Hebbel am Ufer, this endeavour has yielded many success stories and an active alumni community of over 5,400 former participants served to support the development of the selected film projects during and after the event. Selected talents are generally in the fifth to tenth year of their professional careers and those attending will have been picked on the merits of their artistic achievements as well as their work’s respective national impact.

This year’s edition of Berlinale Talents welcomes the following talents among those selected whose experience predominantly focuses on animated film production:
