Diversity at the Berlinale

The advent of a more inclusive film industry constitutes one of this sector’s greatest structural challenges.

Promoting the plurality of voices and a more inclusive society has been a crucial part of the Berlinale’s legacy since its founding in 1951. This is reflected annually in the film programmes of the various sections and special series as well as in the initiatives and special events of the Berlinale. Indeed, inclusion is not solely concerned with the works of artists with a thematic focus on diversity; the composition of film crews and selection committees is also called into question.

Public events, events accessible with accreditation and external events focussing on diversity will take place at the Berlinale in 2020 are displayed in the PDF.
