Binge Fever!

Television “Made in Germany” is having a golden moment with the rise of international streaming services. German series that appeal to global audiences through smart and original writing, diverse themes, talented lineups and opulent productions have never received so much attention.

Berlinale Bloggers

A constantly evolving Festival: This is how the 73rd Berlinale, which ran from 16 to 26 February 2023, described itself. Our bloggers from nine countries were also curiously moving back and forth between the film festival's cinemas – and presenting their highlights from a selection of more than 400 films.
