Achievements and Alumni

We are proud that several projects that participated in the first edition of the Cutting Edge Talent Camp (CETC) went to the 2021 edition of Berlinale and beyond and were recognized in features by Variety and Screen International (link).

Alexander Koberidze´s second feature What Do We See When We Look at the Sky was produced by CETC participant Mariam Shatberashvili. The German-Gerogian co-production was selected for the main competition at the Berlinale and was picked up for sales by Cercamon.

Henrika Kull´s movie Bliss screened in the Panorama section at the Berlinale and was picked up for international sales by Reel Suspects.

Eva Knopf´s hybrid project Kintsugi was selected for Berlinale Talents. Maximilian Haslberger, with his company Amerikafilm, is attached as a producer.
