The 63rd international film festival in Berlin – the Berlinale – is taking place from 7 to 17 February 2013. Every year, film fever sweeps the capital and the stars of the big screen can be seen walking the red carpet in front of crowds of cheering fans. The Berlinale is the world's biggest public film festival. Around 400 films screened at Potsdamer Platz and the Friedrichstadtpalast offer something for everyone, from big-budget international productions to experimental independent films and art house cinema. The films aim to captivate, inspire and broaden the horizons of their audiences.
