It’s almost that time of the year again in Berlin. A time for my perfect winter blues remedy. Well, actually second perfect after a trip to somewhere warm, but you get the point. It’s almost time for Berlinale Film Festival.
What is it, you asked? It an annual film festival in Berlin, which happens to be the largest in the world in terms of audience and ticket sold. There will be a selection of around 400 films, running in many movie theaters in Berlin, from 11 – 21 February 2010. Overwhelming? Yes. And such a money drainer too … but it’s worth it.
The program for this year is up at Berlinale Programme, where you could also buy the ticket online later on if you want to avoid the queue. There is also a synopsis of each movie and workshop.
Now the crazy task for me is to choose which movie we’d like to see. I was hoping there will be some Indonesian movies since last year there were a couple of them. But unfortunately this year there’s none . I would also like to watch some movies in the Competition section, some short films, and hopefully some movies from France and Japan. But above all, I will try to choose uplifting movies. No depressing stuff for me please!
I’ll post my list of movies before the end of the week. If you have any suggestions of movies (movies from your country, your favorite director, actors, or something you’ve already seen, anything) please do let me know in the comments section . In the mean time, a red carpet picture from last year .
