Welcome to Berlinale 2017
With around 400 films shown, the Berlinale is the biggest public festival in the world. For this festival, it makes no difference whether there are major productions with Hollywood stars or low-budget independent films, because the film festival is centered on competition. The winning film will be awarded the Golden Bear.
The Berlinale films are shown in various cinemas all over the city. For this year’s main location, the Berlinale Palast at Potsdamer Platz Stage Theater was chosen. Further performances will be seen in the revue theater Friedrichstadt-Palast. The complete program of the Berlin International Film Festival and tickets will be available beginning in February 2017.
