Right now I’m working on my feature length documentary Reporter, based on archive materials. I’m looking for some editing feedback as well as the networking possibilities to enlarge the co-production possibilities. Berlin is a world winter film capital, you cannot miss it! Berlinale Talents is a great opportunity to be part of it. - Magdalena
I'm sure a week before the festival I will be panicking, trying to finish everything. As I'm attending both as an editor and a representative of a production company, I think in some way it will be useful to meet most people on the scheme. I am hoping to see great work, from other Talents or at the general festival, and chat to the people that made them. Also, as my company has only recently moved into producing drama and documentary projects, I would love to learn more about development labs, funding schemes and co-production opportunities we could take our projects to. - Anna
I've mostly worked on short films but my first main role was in a feature film titled Videofilia, an avant-garde fiction which will be released later this year. I am hoping to participate in bigger projects that leave a mark on the viewer and involve interesting people. Projects which would be a challenge for me and characters that make me experience unimaginable things. - Muki
Right now, I know two things: I will go back to Romania and make an experimental film and a fiction exercise. I hope to finish them both before the end of spring. I am trying to make a filmic study on loneliness and I am trying to do it in two ways: an experimentalvisceral and a fiction-connotation one. - Alexandru

I find business cards essential. It’s usual routine: refill the stock of business cards, prepare the rough cut of our last film, as well as trailers, working materials, presentations of our current works-in-progress.
I am looking for tips what I should do with my projects for directions where I should move on in experimental filmmaking. is is why I am interested in meeting people who may share their bigger experience in this area. Besides, I may meet some potential partners at the EFM - I am already in negotiations with some of them. - Max

I’d love to write the music for a film in another language. My first feature film was a mixture of English and Hindi and I learnt so much about a culture that was completely diﬀerent to the one I’d grown up in. I’d love to meet a rich producer who wants to give me unlimited money to write lots of music with a massive orchestral recording budget, all without sacrificing any of my artistic integrity – that can happen, right? - Blair
