­­­­New for 2023: Digital Set Designers
The last few years have seen vast changes in how films are made, with technology playing a more important role, bridging the gaps from reality to the narrative worlds. With that in mind, we are now also officially welcoming VFX, CGI and XR artists to apply as Digital Set Designers and join the conversations and workshops in our Production Design Studio.­­­­
­­­­A Home also for XR and Transmedia Projects in Development
Creatives with XR/transmedia projects in development can apply for the Short Form Station. The lab, supported by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, offers ten selected creatives and filmmakers the chance to further develop their short film, series and interactive projects in an open and dialogue-driven exchange with renowned mentors.­­­­
­­­­Focus on Audience Designers

Creating access to films, both in local communities and online, has never been more important, nor has supporting the initiatives that do so. Since 2021, we have been welcoming emerging curators and founders of audience-centred cinema spaces, VOD platforms and other festival and film initiatives to apply for Berlinale Talents as Audience Designers.­­­­
