Berlinale Talents is the annual summit and networking platform of the Berlin International Film Festival for 250 outstanding creatives from the fields of film and drama series.
Actors are the crucial vehicle that convey the dialogue and emotion of the film. Tasked with embodying the characters in collaboration with the scriptwriter and director, actors must work together with many creative contributors to realize their roles. Actors from around the world are invited to explore their techniques, to work with dialogue delivery, to meet with international casting directors and more in the Acting Studio.
The emerging filmmakers who are invited are coached and mentored by renowned and multiple award-winning industry experts and over 100 international professionals, including not only Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Kristof Konrad, but also Jane Campion, Meryl Streep, Juliette Binoche, Holly Hunter, Werner Herzog, Ken Loach, James Manos Jr., Mike Leigh, John Cameron Mitchell, Sandy Powell, Walter Murch, Ulrich Seidl, and Paul Verhoeven.
