Berlin, the German capital , a city on par with the likes of New York , London and Paris most certainly knows how to look backward and forward at once, how to remember and how to renew. Shaking off its heavy past, today’s Berlin is fast-changing, lively and fun.
Also known as the ” Berlinale” , the Berlin Film Festival has long been one of Europe’s most important film festivals alongside the Cannes Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival. The festival has hosted world renowned filmmakers such as Ingmar Bergman , Roman Polaski and many others.
2010 sees the festival celebrating it’s 60th Birthday accompanied by a special programme of world-class and enthralling shows.
So, where does it all happen?
