Berlin 2005: the Talent Press

The Talent Press is organized for the second time at the Berlin International Film Festival, as part of the "Talent Campus" initiative. Seven young critics have been invited to attend the festival, to make acquaintance with recent world cinema, and to meet experienced colleagues. They write daily on the festival, guided by Derek Malcolm, Peter Cowie and Meenakshi Shedde. Their texts are published here and on the Talent Campus website.

Walter Salles, one of the Campus' tutors, talks to Myrna Brandao about the Campus, about his engagement for young filmmakers, about his next films. Arrow.
