Berlinale Unveils Programs For Forum, Forum Expanded & Shorts – Deadline

On the second day of this week’s Berlinale announcements, selections for the Forum’s programs, the Forum, and the short stories were revealed.

The forum program contains 17 films, mainly from early-career filmmakers, although there are some notable directors such as Israeli documentary director Avi Mughrabi, Berlin director Chris Wright and Stephan Colby. In total, 14 world premieres took place for the first time.

The expanded forum selection consists of short films and medium-length films, and 17 films will be shown in addition to the art installations. In the short film program, 20 titles will compete for the Berlinale Awards this year. Scroll down for the complete decks.

Yesterday, the festival unveiled its programs “Generation and Retrospective”.

Berlinale reveals generational and retroactive choices

As mentioned earlier, buyers will get a chance to watch these movies during the virtual EFM, which runs from March 1-5. The judges will also be appointed to decide on the festival awards during this period. We hope fans will have the opportunity to see movies in cinemas during a summer event planned in June.
