Berlin celebrates film.

As the name suggests, the Berlinale is a Biennial of sorts, a film biennial and major film festival. The Berlinale is to Germany what Cannes is to France.
Every year, more than 20,000 visitors stream into the German capital from the entire world (from 120 countries), including 4,000 journalists. Throughout the event visitors can attend screenings, premieres and at the end you can even attend the awards ceremonies where the Golden Bear and Silver Bears are presented to the winners.

The Golden Bear is awarded for best film, while the Silver Bears are for best director, best actor, best actress and so on.

The festival also boasts a huge film market, the second largest in the world after Cannes.
