This year once again, the Canadian selection at the Berlinale won’t go unnoticed! 

Rendezvous at the Canada Pavilion and take part in some unique events and initiatives such as Perspective Canada, Producers Without Borders, Berlinale Co-production Market and much more.


What’s hot in Berlin this year? Two Canadian films will be world premiering in the official competition: Ghost Town Anthology by director Denis Côté, and, opening the festival, the Denmark/Canada coproduction The Kindness of Strangers, helmed by Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig.

Selected in the Generation Kplus section, A Colony will also have its World Premiere. Also on the agenda: the documentary Anthropocene (recently awarded the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award by the Toronto film Critics Association), will screen at the Berlinale Special.

Press Lunch, Canadian reception, panels and matchmaking at the Co-production Market… Don’t miss incredible opportunities to meet the best of Canadian talent at Berlin!
