One of the most important changes that new artistic director Carlo Chatrian is bringing to the 70th edition of the Berlinale (20 February-1 March) is a new competitive strand dubbed Encounters. A three-member jury will choose the winners for Best Film, Best Director and a Special Jury Award.

“As a result of passionate research, the 15 titles chosen for Encounters present the vitality of cinema in all of its forms. Each film presents a different way of interpreting the cinematic story: autobiographical, intimate, political, social, philosophical, epic, surreal. The films take up the challenge of shaping a world, rather than reproducing it,” says Chatrian.
