Berlinale Talent Campus will invite 300 emerging filmmakers from all over the world (directors, screenwriters, producers, distributors, actors, cinematographers, editors, production designers, sound designers/score composers, and film critics) during the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival.
The application can be found online at www.berlinale-talentcampus.de, deadline is September 20, 2012.
Berlinale Talent Campus brings emerging filmmakers and seasoned film professionals together and offers them a platform to find collaborators and discuss new trends and developments in contemporary cinema and media.
“Getting to know the rules of the game is one thing, daring to break these rules and create a space to be playful and unconventional is pivotal. Emerging filmmakers will exchange thoughts with established industry experts on the intricacies of entertainment, how to push storytelling to unexpected levels and how to reach the heart of the audience,” says Campus programme manager Matthijs Wouter Knol.
Filmmakers can also apply for intensive mentoring through the diverse Campus hands-on training programmes.
In 2013, these programmes range from Script and Doc Station (20 scripts in development), Talent Project Market (10 finalised scripts), Talent Actors Stage and Talent Press to Campus Studio (for editing and post-production) and will include the new Short Film Station and Sound Studio.
At the Short Film Station, ten filmmakers with short film projects will work with scriptwriting experts and be connected to emerging producers and the international short film industry.
At the Sound Studio, sound designers and score composers receive professional guidance on improving their work and get a chance to connect at an early stage with screenwriters and directors.
