The Berlinale Special Series programme, highly successful since its introduction in 2015, will run under the new name Berlinale Series and move to the new venue Zoo Palast for the 2018 festival.
In 2015 the Berlinale was the first A-festival worldwide to create an individual special programme for series within the official programme. In doing so, the Berlin International Film Festival started a new trend and gave the high-quality serial narrative format a prominent platform.
Since then, acclaimed titles such as Better Call Saul, The Night Manager, False Flag and 4 Blocks have celebrated their world or international premieres in Berlin.
The new venue Zoo Palast gives Berlinale Series the opportunity to bring the international world of series closer to Berlinale audiences.
