2018 marks the 68th Berlin Film Festival since its debut in 1951. Spanning across cinemas across Berlin, the freshest films are premiering to an expected audience of 325,000+ (as of 2014 ticket sales) making Berlinale the largest public festival worldwide. Running from February 15-25, filmmakers from around the world gather to celebrate their achievements in film – or to compete for the prestigious Golden Bear.
Berlinale 2018 is supporting an impressive catalogue of films this year. Steven Soderbergh’s new film Unsane is having its debut alongside Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot – all of which are hotly anticipated. Even more so is Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs which is sporting a high caliber cast and using the same animation style as Fantastic Mr. Fox. Lastly, Willem Dafoe is being honored with a Golden Bear due to his lifetime of work. And because of this, a selection of his greatest will be screened at Berlinale.
