FIL 6614 - Berlin Film Festival 2010 Begins
More than 19,000 film professionals from 136 countries, including about 4,000 journalists, are accredited for the Berlin International Film Festival which commences on Feb 11th. With more than 270,000 tickets typically sold each year, the Berlinale is by most measures the largest film festival in the world.
With so many film professionals attending, the European Film Market (EFM), the film trade fair integrated into the Berlinale, has developed into one of the most important events for the international film business. The Berlinale and EFM, the festival and the market, together form a unique forum for formal and informal connection.
