and series of baking bread with. your. breaking his way around the europe. the sixty ninth burning film festival about is about to get out the way and it will be the last fall festival directed to a costly he's been in charge for nearly two decades and in that time he's raised its profile by one of the major film festivals in the world i'll be talking to my colleague melissa holroyd about what's in store this year but first a look back cos lex tenure. we caught up with to talk us look at butlins film and television museum. the current photo exhibition there on the history of the belly nala also tells his story as festival director. he took over the helm in two thousand and one. for me got dizzy it was not exciting because it's such a huge festival. number of initiatives we've expanded the film market the
co-production market cooperation with the book and the biggest project was the talent campus called simply talents today. more than seven thousand young people have been a billion dollars nearly ten percent of the films we've shown each year have involved someone from the talent companies whether it is a director actor rule set design to. design a. coslet also gave german sentiment a special platform including inviting german directors to the main competition. i get into was really the first year that we started always having a german production in the competition the entire sometimes as many as four. interestingly when you look at the statistics these german films all the actors in these german films have won a lot of silver bear awards and feel it's you know a b. and b. called the then german turkish director fattish akon even won the main golden bear
prize for best film in two thousand and four for his powerful relationship drama head on. that's why it was the moment that was a big moment i realized that on the red carpet arab language t.v. stations were suddenly there the whole world flew in from i want you for all i know when the rolling stones walk down the red carpet in two thousand and eight that was a dream come true for a cause like a passionate music fan they presented their documentary shine a light directed by martin scorsese. for after but as a qualifier leader of the press conference he said he would thank you ditto for inviting us on the father and i wasn't there but someone ran out and said hey you should download that as your ring tone. thank you i didn't download it but it was
a great evening and one of the best experiences i've ever had here. is that these the ip. cars like how skillfully struck a balance between hollywood glamour and powerful films addressing politically relevant topics in twenty fifteen the jury awarded the golden bear in absentia to a rainy and director jeff harp on a he was forbidden to leave the country the next year the main prize went to fire it see an italian documentary about the refugee crisis cost. also turned the belly knowledge into the world's largest publicly accessible film festival with hundreds of screenings across the city film fans have the chance to see their idols up close even global superstars like shah rukh khan. trouble come after us and shah rukh khan did the red carpet and went up to his fans even hugging which never happened people usually just take selfies i don't think anyone has as many fans as he has. after eighteen years in the spotlight this is
due to cost looks final barely nala he leaves behind a legacy that will go down in film history. and my colleague mr horowitz and now now it's his song but he's leaving behind a pretty vibrant festival is leaving behind a very very good legacy he's certainly raised the billion dollar to be among the three best festivals in the world the other two festivals can venice there are a lot more focused on the competition itself but the berlin is really a festival for the people which is also why it became so big it's also a very political festival what i think is interesting is that what he's praised for here what we've just seen is also what he's been criticised for people say that the burden is too big and that that means the standard has gone down and they also say that he's willing to like to take political risks but not really cinematic ones
it's always going to happen i was there i mean ok it's his last belinelli what's in store for us well over four hundred films for a start seventeen of those films are in competition for the golden bear and seven of those seventeen have been directed by women just thinking about the venice festival where only one of their films in competition was directed by a woman in twenty eight ok let's look briefly at the competition. what's call your art the opening film for a start the kindness of strangers that's called by danish director lone a share. it's a modern day fairy tale about outsiders who cross paths in a new york restaurant ok and mr jones enough to choose another film by star polish director agnieszka holland it's about a journalist who travels to moscow in one nine hundred thirty three and discovers the myth behind the communist utopia ok for the moment thank you let's have
