Berlinale Film Festival Brings Hollywood to Germany

The prestigious Berlinale film festival is set to return to Berlin in February 2013. This will be the film festival and award show’s 63rd outing and excitement over the event is already said to be spreading through Germany’s capital.

Berlinale, or the Berlin International Film Festival as it is also known, is one of the leading film festivals in the world, known for attracting some of the most reputable directors, actors and script writers around. At stake is the iconic Golden Bear, given to the best motion picture, and the Silver Bear which is awarded in categories such as best actor, best actress and best director. Other awards include the Audience Award, Crystal Bear for best children’s film and Teddy Award for films featuring LGBT topics.  

Last year British director Mike Leigh took a break from receiving awards to be jury president at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival. Alongside him on the jury was American actor Jake Gyllenhaal, along with six other movie professionals.  The Golden Bear for best film went to the Taviani brothers’ Caesar Must Die and Meryl Streep was also awarded an Honorary Golden Bear that year.

The festival will run from 7th to 17th February 2013 and posters advertising the event were unveiled recently. This year’s budget for the festival is €19.5 million with €6.5 million in funding from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture. Tickets are expected to go on sale prior to the event but guests will also be able to buy on the door.
