Berlinale Special 2014

Berlinale Special 2014 

Berlinale Special is part of the official programme and presents recent works by contemporary filmmakers, as well as film portraits of renowned personalities and extraordinary formats.

This year 18 productions have been invited to participate in Berlinale Special, including nine world premieres.

With many prominent guests expected to attend, the Gala Screenings are being held, as usual, at the Friedrichstadt-Palast and, for the first time, at the Zoo Palast.

“Wonderful that the legendary Zoo Palast may now be added as a venue for big Berlinale films. In 2014 we will celebrate several Gala Screenings of Berlinale Special at this historic movie theatre. Of course, we’ll also roll out the red carpet at the Friedrichstadt-Palast for the stars of Berlinale Special,” says Festival Director Dieter Kosslick.

The presentations at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele will again include moderated discussions with the filmmakers after the screenings.
