Berlinale’s house of talents

Podcast Berlinale Talents © Goethe-Institut, Berlinale Talents The podcast Berlinale’s house of talents presents selected perspectives from acclaimed filmmakers as well as international participants of the Berlinale Talents on a monthly basis: this is one of the world's key forums for international up-and-coming filmmakers and an immensely important platform for networking and qualifying young talents. Here they have the opportunity to interact with experienced film industry leaders and to engage intensively with the medium of film. The House of talents podcast picks up on this atmosphere and offers insights into worldwide production conditions, artistic creative processes and personal lives of filmmakers from around the world.

The first episode features a conversation between Brazilian director, screenwriter and festival director Kleber Mendonça Filho and the head of the Berlinale World Cinema Fund, Vincenzo Bugno. The actors behind the realisation of the visions of American filmmaker Wes Anderson have their say, and it is about various forms of collaboration between different trades.
