Berlinale Spotlight: Berlinale Shorts in Berlin


For many years, the Berlinale has been present worldwide with specially curated programmes, even outside of the actual festival period. These activities are known as the Berlinale Spotlight.
In cooperation with the Junge Akademie, the first Berlinale Spotlights: Berlinale Shorts will take place this year in Berlin as part of the shorts/salon.

The short film programmes on the topics of “censorship” and “self-efficacy” were curated by Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck, section head of the Berlinale Shorts. The panel of academics invited by the Junge Akademie will enable a dialogue between film and research.

“We unite short films and scientists from various disciplines with one another for the purpose of opening up new perspectives on a chosen topic and bringing different expertise into conversation. In this regard, the short film resembles a speech. Listening full of curiosity and engaging in the non-biased exchange of ideas, that’s all very important to us,” says Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck.

Both events are part of the activities celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Junge Akademie. Entry is free. Prior registration is nevertheless requested:
