The Berlin Film Festival will introduce a new competition next year, called Perspectives, aimed at discovering new talent. This move, announced by new festival director Tricia Tuttle, also marks the end of the Encounters section. Perspectives will include up to 14 fiction debuts from around the world, with a jury choosing the best first feature, an award sponsored by GWFF with 50,000 euros shared between the producers and directors of the winning film.
