Three Georgian filmmakers selected as Berlinale talents
Screenwriter and producer Nino Varsimashvili, director and producer Rati Tsiteladze and director Anna Sarukhanova are among 250 promising filmmakers from 81 countries.

Every year, Berlinale selects talents in the 5th to 10th year of their careers who come with professional expertise and festival experience under their belts. Criteria for the selection are the filmmaker’s’ artistic achievements and the local impact and relevance of their work’s content in their respective countries of origin. In the words of the Berlinale team: „What
unites them? That you'll want to keep an eye on 'em!“
