Berlinale Talents 2018: Nancy Schreiber, Agnès Godard, Christian Petzold, João Pedro Rodrigues, Ryūichi Sakamoto, Gus Van Sant, Carla Simón, Lav Diaz, Lauren Greenfield, David and Nathan Zellner, Josephine Decker, Samuel Maoz, Tom Tykwer and Other Guests Share Secrets 
The Berlinale Talents programme is complete. 25 public talks and five film screenings invite Berlin audiences and 250 Talents to join into a dialogue about filmmaking. It is all about secrets, and not just stage ones: “For 16 years, Berlinale Talents has been the festival’s laboratory, a place for experimenting with and propagating new forms of collaboration and open communication. Top-down paradigms of knowledge just don’t pay off, however sharing and participation are true secrets for success,” says Programme Manager Florian Weghorn.
The Jury President and Many Festival Guests from the Competition 

It is tradition for many prominent festival guests to stop by Berlinale Talents, and this year’s roster includes Gus Van Sant (Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot), Christian Petzold and Barbara Auer (Transit), as well as Jury President Tom Tykwer along with other jury members. Competition guests include several Berlinale Talents alumni, such as David Zellner, who presents Damsel with his brother Nathan and discusses the humorous treatment of gender and genre issues of their “feminist Western.” The only two debut films in Competition – Touch Me Not (Adina Pintilie) and Las herederas (The Heiresses, Marcelo Martinessi) – are both by alumni directors. Las herederas will open the public screenings and discussions of alumni films at HAU Hebbel am Ufer on Saturday, February 17.
