Berlin Film Festival’s New Director Tricia Tuttle Offers Progress for Fest Amid Industry Challenges

Tricia Tuttle, Berlin Film Festival's new director, could bring about progressive change for the fest amid fiscal challenges faced by the industry.

For decades, the Berlin Film Festival has been forging its own iconoclastic path, known for screening the best of world cinema and edgy underground discoveries as well as its cold February temperatures, while the starrier and warmer Cannes and Venice fests have been in fierce competition to grab the limelight (aka Oscar movies). Chatrian, meanwhile, has proven this year that the Berlinale could boast real star power as many A-listers and Oscar hopefuls will attend the festival with their new films, notably Cillian Murphy with the opening night movie “Small Things Like These,” and Carey Mulligan, who will be there to present the Netflix sci-fi drama “Spaceman,” along with Adam Sandler, and Martin Scorsese, who will receive the Honorary Golden Bear. Kristin Stewart’s Sundance hit “Love Lies Bleeding” will screen alongside Hunter Schafer starrer “Cuckoo,” while other star pics include “Another End,” with Gael Garcia Bernal and Berenice Bejo, “La Cocina” with Rooney Mara, “Treasure” with Lena Dunham and Stephen Fry and “A Different Man” with Sebastian Stan.
