The Berlin Film Festival, or Berlinale, began in 1951, the brainchild of an American film officer interested in promoting British and American ideology (as opposed to that of the Soviets who controlled the eastern part in the war-torn city). By the sixties and seventies, this policy was turned around as the Berlin Film Festival became the premier showcase for new work from the Soviet Union and its satellite states. Now the festival includes over 130 countries with nearly 20,000 people from the world film community coming every February. Click through our “The Years of the Berlin Film Festival” to find out more.
