The Years of the Berlin Film Festival
Updated February 11, 2010
The Berlinale turns 60 this year. What a strange journey it’s been.
Slide 1: 2010 - The Berlin Film Festival
The Berlin Film Festival lights up the city.
The Berlin Film Festival turns 60 this year, with no signs of slowing down. For Focus Features, two upcoming films––Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg and Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids are All Right––are in competition, and Yuen Woo Ping’s martial arts extravaganza True Legend (which is being handled by Focus International) is in the Berlinale Special category. Of course, there are many more films than these three. The festival that now screens nearly 400 films from some 130 countries didn’t start out that way. To get a sense of what the life of a film festival looks like, we’ve picked select years to profile (with much help from Festival’s extensive historical archive.)
