The Politics of the 56th Berlin Film Festival

"A jury can't award prizes to things that aren't there – namely experiments, innovation, or films that make both artistic and content statements," writes Daniel Kothernschulte on the Berlinale awards. Kothernschulte goes on to say that the jury did its best but, as far as he's concerned, the focus on political films restricted the scope of the festival. "The Berlinale is already one of the world's most effective institutions for promoting films. At the same time, it's unofficially the only competition with a thematic emphasis. Political films fill up the newspapers, and sometimes even our hearts. However, those who were hoping to discover an as yet unknown masterpiece will be somewhat disappointed at the moment in Berlin. The festival threatens to lose the joy of discovery, the joy of the unknown and of art that doesn't have to mean anything."
