speed meetings at the 2016 Berlinale Talents

9th January 2017

British Council is again thrilled to be a partner of Berlinale Talents, the 15th annual summit and networking platform of the Berlinale for 250 outstanding creatives from the fields of film and drama series.

The six-day programme (Feb 11-16) will include more than 100 events, including a visit from renowned environmental sculptor Christo. This year's theme is Courage: Against All Odds.

The 250 Talents were chosen from 2,711 applicants from 127 countries. We are excited to meet the 19 British participants (listed below).

British Council is one of the founding partners of the programme – we’ve been on board since the first event, which kicked off in 2003 under the name Berlin Talent Campus.
