Berlin Unveils Co-Pro Market Books Showcase & Forum, Perspektive Deutsches Kino Titles

The Berlin International Film Festival has made a series of additions to its 2022 program, including unveiling the Books At Berlinale industry event lineup and a selection of films for the Forum strand.

As reported yesterday, the festival is slimming down the core days of its film program this year, with all premieres taking place February 10-16, and repeat screenings running 17-20. Cinemas will also be at 50% capacity, among other restrictions.

Also announced yesterday was the opening film, François Ozon’s Peter Von Kant.

Today, the fest has revealed the 10 books that will take part in Books At Berlinale this year, which is part of the Co-Production market and will thus run virtually as per the rest of the industry activity in the European Film Market.

Berlin has also announced a selection of titles in its Forum Special titles, including films that continue the Fiktionsbescheinigung series that began as part of the Berlin Summer Special last year. The series explores the question of how culture in general and cinema in particular are related to society and racism.

Also below are titles from the Forum Expanded and Perspektive Deutsches Kino programs.
