Berlinale Spotlight Bangladesh begins in Dhaka on Sunday. Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in partnership with Dhaka DocLab and the International Film Initiatives of Bangladesh, hosts this year Berlinale Spotlight.
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 convened today at 10 am-12 pm at the Goethe-Institut’s auditorium.
During the information session, Berlinale delegate Dorothee Wenner and Berlinale South Asia consultant Meenakshi Shedde introduce the opportunities Berlinale and its diverse sub-programmes offer to filmmakers in Bangladesh and both are available to answer the audience’s questions.
In addition, 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 communicated across film activists in Bangladesh.
