Berlinale Talents 2019 – Mistakes: How to Fail Better

69. Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin

How to fail better: In its 17th year, Berlinale Talents is looking for mistakes. From 9 to 14 February, 2019, altogether 250 Talents, about 130 experts and mentors, and the Berlin audience will report on situations in which they stumbled in their creative process and had to take paths that were different from the ones originally intended. The aim is not only to talk about how to deal productively with minor mistakes and major catastrophes. The approximately 100 workshops, talks and film screenings, which will once again take place at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, will also focus on the deliberate decision to “do things wrong” as an aesthetic experiment, a creative force of renewal, and a willful rebellion of art against the norm. From 4 February, tickets for public events can be bought via, at all Berlinale ticket offices and at HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
