The Film Network Berlin is a contact point for professional filmmakers who live and work in Berlin.
The aim of the network is to bring young professionals into dialogue with established filmmakers through regular networking events, thematic workshops and a mentoring programme in order to create optimal conditions for constructive and ongoing interexchange.
Filmmakers are given the opportunity to come together in conversation, address industry-specific questions and initiate collaborations at our monthly coffee club and other networking events in cooperation with our partners in the Berlin film industry.
Through our varied workshop and seminar programme, practical knowledge as well as film specific know-how are imparted. Insight into the work of established filmmakers is provided through informative talks and the presentation of successful project examples.
Our mentoring programme offers new talents the chance to be professionally guided and closely supervised by an experienced mentor. During a period of three months, the mentees are supported in the realization of their own projects and in their professional development.
Members are supported in the implementation of their projects by means of cooperative partnerships with film festivals, other networks, professional associations and more. In this way, the network provides new input as well as concrete advice.
The Film Network Berlin is free of charge. Filmmakers who want to join the Network and have their residency in Berlin are eligible by proof of work within professional audio-visual media and film.
The Film Network Berlin is funded by the European Regional development Fund (ERDF).
