Berlin Film Festival confirms dates for 2023 | News


The Berlin International Film Festival has confirmed its dates for next year, with the event set to take place from February 16-26, 2023.

The dates are slightly later than this year’s edition, which opened on February 10 and ended this Sunday, February 20.

The Berlinale usually falls in the middle of international awards season; The Baftas and the Oscars have yet to confirm dates for their 2023 ceremonies. For this year’s events, both have opted for March dates (13th for the Baftas and 27th for the Oscars).

The dates of the 2023 edition of the European Film Market (EFM), which takes place alongside the Berlinale, remain to be confirmed.

The 2022 festival reported 156,000 tickets sold, despite a 50% capacity limit in cinemas due to Covid restrictions. 1,400 journalists from 65 countries attended the event in person in Berlin.

“The successful conclusion of the Berlinale 2022 gives us great pleasure and confidence for the future,” co-directors Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian said in a statement. “Sharing a cultural experience is possible even in times of pandemic; indeed, it then becomes particularly important. We intended to carry the flag of cinema with this year’s festival, and we were delighted to receive so much support for it from audiences and filmmakers alike.

The EFM, Berlinale Co-Production Market, Berlinale Talents and World Cinema Fund Day all took place online this year, with 1,438 virtual feature film and series co-production market meetings .
