Due to the complicated development of COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 Berlin International Film Festival will be different from the previous editions.
From February 10-16, the films will be introduced to the public at different cinemas in Berlin.
The Golden and Silver Bear Awards, as well as the GWFF-sponsored Best Debut Award and the Berlinale Documentary Award, will be given on February 16.
Accordingly, the "Public Day" will be extended by four days, from February 17-20, to screen the movies again at all cinemas taking part in the festival.
Eighteen films from 15 countries will compete for the Gold and Silver Bear Awards. At this year’s event, French actress Isabelle Huppert for her great contributions to Berlinale will be honoured by the "Honorary Golden Bear” award.
Founded in 1951, Berlinale is one of the three oldest and most prestigious international film festivals in the world, along with France’s Cannes Film Festival and Italy’s Venice Film Festival. It is the world’s largest film festival attracting the largest audience every year.
