Pause & Centre @Room of Stillness

Berlinale Industry Events

Access: On pre-registration

The EFM continues its pathway in addressing and supporting the issue of mental health in the media industry, following our 2022 think tank report 'Shaping Change' as well as our 2023 mindfulness sessions in the Room of Stillness.

Changing the work environment in our industry to a healthier one – with less stress, burnout, self-harm and people quitting for good – might be a long-term investment that takes time, years, as well as a structural change. But what we can all do here and now is to utilise our own, individual approach to how we work, how we act in the industry, and how we rest and recharge. Little changes in our daily routine can make a huge difference in the long run. The necessary rest can in itself be the first step to a positive change.

We invite you to Pause & Centre at the Room of Stillness and find time to recharge on Monday dedicated to mindfulness while participating in the film market.
