Synopsis of Programme 
Join us in a dialogue with the film programmers of the Berlin International Film Festival and find out more about the complex and under-examined process of film festival programming

How do film programmers select films for their festivals? How do programmers balance a selection of cinematically experimental works with popular crowd-pleasers, whether they be for retrospectives or world premieres? How do film festivals help carve the success of the films and filmmakers they showcase

"Everyone knows that acceptance to a high-profile fest ratchets up the chances of a film's success. But few understand the mechanics of the selection process." Patricia Thomson, Variety.
