Environment & Sustainability

Berlinale supports sustainable and green thinking

Food, pleasure and the environment – these are the topics that the Culinary Cinema focuses on. Every year, the Culinary Cinema shows around twelve current features, documentaries and short films that deal with food and/or the environment. The films are selected according to their thematic and cinematic qualities.

At "TeaTime" at 5:00 pm, the Gropius Mirror hosts book presentations, panel discussions and tastings. In the morning of the last day, there is an event for young people, reserved for invited school classes. The aim of this event is to increase awareness of healthy nutrition in schools and the international school garden movement. 


With the support of green electricity provider Entega and the Öko-Institut e.V. (Institute for Applied Ecology) the carbon footprint of the festival and the year-round operations could be measured and compensated. That way, the Berlinale was able to reduce its climate bilance remarkably since 2011. Several other measures to reduce and offset the emissions of hazardous greenhouse gases were developed and implemented.
