Berlin Events: The Berlinale Film Festival

04 Jan 2024

One of the world’s great film festivals, the Berlinale returns in 2024 with plenty on its plate. The 74th edition of the famous festival promises to be one of the best yet, with an impressive variety of films scheduled alongside appearances from some of the biggest names in world cinema. Around 400 films will be screened over the festival’s 11 days, as tens of thousands of cinema lovers converge on the famous city in search of new and old heroes alike.

The festival takes place in some 30 venues around the city, taking over Berlin’s famous cinemas and theatres alike, as some of the most prestigious awards in film are won and lost. The variety of the schedule is one of the Berlinale’s strongest points, with everything from local to international cinema embraced, along with movies put together by the youngest members of the artistic world. Every genre is found here. 

Tickets are available three days out from a screening, although don’t expect to be able to rock up on the day and enjoy a film. It pays to be organised when it comes to the Berlinale, so keep an eye on the official website and get your tickets purchased sooner rather than later. Also be aware that English does not reign supreme here, and not everything will be in English or come with English subtitles. Best again to keep an eye on the official site, or pick up the official programme booklet for the full details. 

The festival runs from 15-25 February. Head to for the full story.
