COLOGNE, Germany — The Berlin International Film Festival will mark the 40th anniversary of the Berlin Vietnam Congress next month with a special lineup of films that trace the U.S. attitude toward the Vietnam War. The Vietnam Congress was an anti-war demonstration organized by the Socialist German Student Assn.
Many view the Congress as the start of worldwide protest against the war.
Berlinale Talent Campus, Goethe-Institut and FIPRESCI organize at this year’s Berlinale (February 7-17, 2008) again and for the sixth time the “Talent Press”, an initiative within the Berlinale Talent Campus. This workshop allows young critics to attend the festival (with a press badge), and to win experience in writing, on a daily basis, and on one of the biggest film festivals of the world.
