Home When You Return by Carl Elsaesser, (c) Carl Elsaesser

The 52nd International Forum of New Cinema and the 17th Forum Expanded will take place from the 10th to the 20th of February 2022. The Forum Expanded exhibition, which had to be cancelled in 2021 due to the pandemic, will also open in February 2022.

Some intensive weeks in the screening cinema and various scouting trips are now bearing their first fruits. The Berlinale Forum selection committee has thus far invited ten titles, including documentaries, essay films, features and hybrid works somewhere in between. Read the press release here.

Newly appointed Forum Expanded section heads Ala Younis and Ulrich Ziemons and the curatorial team are in the process of finalising the 2022 selection and have already selected a number of works. These include new films by Mawena Yehouessi, Rafael Castanheira Parrode and Carl Elsaesser. The Forum Expanded group exhibition will once again present a selection of installations at the silent green Betonhalle. You can find more information in the press release here.
