February in Berlin is all about film: international stars on the red carpet, enthusiastic fans from around the world – and, above all, some great films. Around 400 films are shown at the Berlinale and tickets are available for everyone, because the Berlinale is the world’s largest public film festival. For ten days, the festival features films that inspire, touch and let you discover new worlds.

Berlinale - the world's largest public film festival

Around 400 films are shown at the Berlinale and tickets are available for everyone, because the Berlinale is the largest public film festival in the world. Whether major international productions with top stars, experimental independent films or art-house cinema from around the world, for ten days, the festival features films that inspire, touch and let you discover new worlds. At the heart of the festival is the competition for the Golden Bear. In addition to the main competition, the Berlinale has other sections such as panorama, forum, generation for children and youth and German cinema perspectives.

Berlinale Cinemas

The films at the Berlinale are shown in several cinemas across the city, centred on the Stage Theater at Potsdamer Platz which is transformed for ten days as the Berlinale Palast. Other venues for the Berlinale include the world's largest stage at the Friedrichstadt-Palast, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.

The Stars Flock to the Berlinale
The red carpet at the festival welcomes major stars coming to present their films to their fans and the critics. This year director Paul Verhoeven is serving as jury president. Films with stars such as Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor, Sally Hawkins, Penélope Cruz and more will be shown.


Berlinale Programme

The complete programme for the next Berlinale will be published on the festival's website in February 2017.
