ABOUT CINEBERG UG
We are a collective of film professionals united by the common intent of discovering and enhancing new talent in order to promote their names and work. In this regard, this festival takes submissions online and holds annual screening events in Berlin where a selection of the films will be briefly introduced to the public. Berlin is where we work and cooperate with different production realities in the area, which for us represents a fertile crossroads of cultures and looks to the future. This is also a good place to meet other professionals and network.
