Each year in February the film world gathers in Berlin. 13 bloggers and film journalists from twelve countries presented their takes on the Berlinale for the Goethe-Institut.

As Berlinale bloggers, they were on the lookout for stories – on the big screen and behind the scenes.

All our impressions of the Berlinale 2019 can also be found on Instagram!
