Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in partnership with Dhaka DocLab and the International Film Initiatives of Bangladesh, has organized an event titled “Berlinale Spotlight Bangladesh” from September 2 to September 6.

The “Berlinale Spotlight” aims to connect the Berlin International Film Festival with filmmakers in Bangladesh, and provides a platform for information and one-to-one meetings with a delegate and a consultant of Berlinale, framed by public film screenings.

The information session on Berlinale’s different programmes will be held on September 3 from 10am to 12pm at the Goethe-Institut’s auditorium in Dhaka.

During the information session, Berlinale delegate Dorothee Wenner and Berlinale South Asia consultant Meenakshi Shedde will introduce the opportunities Berlinale and its diverse sub-programmes offer to filmmakers in Bangladesh and both are available to answer the audience’s questions.

They will also host public film screenings, at Goethe-Institut’s auditorium and at the Dhaka Doc Lab (Liberation War Museum).

Moreover, during the Spotlight programme, filmmakers of Bangladesh have the opportunity to discuss their ongoing projects in one-to-one meetings with Dorothee Wenner and Meenakshi Shedde. The meetings were scheduled based on a prior application process with film activists in Bangladesh.
