What to expect this year at the Berlinale
The current issues: #MeToo
The Berlinale has always been seen as the most political one among the world's major festivals. As Germany's largest film festival, it can even influence politics. The festival's head, Dieter Kosslick, has already announced that the #MeToo debate will play a big role. Films dealing with the refugee crisis, already strongly present last year, are prominent this year again.
