Among the other guests: the Sløborn-Cast Emily Kusche and Aaron Hilmer (“Luden”) as well as the actors and actresses Bjarne girl, Aylin Tezel, Pheline Roggan and Tyron Ricketts.

The guests of the traditional reception as part of the Berlinale are welcomed at the state representation by Carsten BrosdaSenator for Culture and Media and Helge Albers, Managing Director of MOIN Film Funding. With the reception, the film in and from Hamburg will be honored and made visible on the international stage. It offers film funding and Hamburg filmmakers the opportunity to talk to national guests and international partners.

On Sunday, February 18th, this year too Hamburg’s First Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher Visit the Berlinale for discussions with the film industry.

There will also be an exclusive look behind the scenes of the new platform on Monday, February 19th in the Gropius Building OMNI Inclusion Data – a low-threshold and anonymized online query tool with which the diversity of the cinema and TV industry can be better recorded in the future.

Dr. Carsten Brosda, Senator for Culture and Media: “With eight premieres, the film from the north will once again make a strong appearance at the Berlinale. After great international successes in recent years, this once again underlines the importance of Hamburg as a film location, which offers first-class conditions for filmmakers, especially through MOIN film funding. With the reception in the Hamburg state representation, we would like to warmly welcome the film scene again this year as part of the Berlinale and look forward to the shared exchange and the opportunity to celebrate films from the north in the international environment of the festival. And it’s not just outstanding films that make an important contribution to understanding our crisis-ridden world. The industry itself also promotes social cohesion and will, for example, contribute to more diversity in the film industry through the new OMNI platform developed by MOIN Film Funding.”

Helge Albers, Managing Director of MOIN Film Funding: “We are going to the Berlinale this year with a very strong program. With “Die” by Matthias Glasner and “L’Empire” by Bruno Dumont, there are two MOIN-funded films in competition at the festival that could hardly be more different. In addition, “System Sprenger” director Nora Fingscheidt presents her new film “The Outrun” with Hollywood star Saoirse Ronan. I’m really looking forward to welcoming the film teams to our Hamburg Tea Time at the state representation. But there is a second highlight: the presentation of our new diversity platform OMNI Inclusion Data – an online tool with which we can finally produce better data on diversity in the German cinema and TV industry in the future.”
