Berlinale Edition 2022 is the first special festival edition of this year. Even as the European Film Market moves to online space, the Berlinale festival will happen in its physical form, and so we prepared this annual update for you.  

The edition showcases What's Slovak in Berlin? on its very first pages. The preview of 2021 in Slovak documentary, fiction and animated film follows. 

We boosted the issue with more interviews, in which our creators Barbora Sliepková, Peter Kerekes, Marian Urban and Diana Cam Van Nguyen shared their personal insights into many aspects of filmmaking. 
In the news section, you will find notices about 8 upcoming Slovak films. 

What are they up to? is a platform where a number of filmmakers shortly talk about their current projects, as well as their future plans. 
The final part provides an overview of new releases (DVD and Blu-ray) which were successfully restored by the SFI. And lastly, the ranking of TOP 20 Slovak films made during the course of one entire century (1921 - 2021) awaits you. 

Let's hope that the summer festivals Cannes and Karlovy Vary will hold their 2022 dates and hopefully happen in their usual physical form. In the meantime, we will be preparing these special editions for you.
