The 11th Berlinale Talent Campus is to 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) to take part in its activities during the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival.
The Campus will take place from February 9 to 14, 2013 with the title "Some Like It Hot".
The Berlinale Talent Campus is looking for the most talented and ambitious up-and-coming filmmakers, distributors and film critics, who are (disregarding their age) in the first years of their professional career. Film students who are about to graduate or taking part in post-graduate programmes can apply, but should have realised outstanding achievements already. All master classes, seminars, and workshops are in English.
Filmmakers can 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. The Short Film Station is organised in collaboration with Berlinale Shorts, AG Kurzfilm, and KurzFilmAgentur Hamburg, and is supported by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
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.
Finally, the Talent Campus will continue in 2013 to select a group of emerging distributors from all over the world to bring filmmakers at the Talent Campus together with emerging distributors who can help them to define and reach their audiences.
