Talent Campus: Once more, with emotions


COLOGNE, Germany -- Emotions will be the thematic focus of next year's Berlinale Talent Campus, the film school-cum-networking event run by the Berlin International Film Festival.

Under the title "Screening Emotions," the 2008 Campus, which runs Feb. 9-14, will examine the manufacture of emotion for the screen.

The Berlinale Talent Campus is accepting applications through Oct. 15 on its Web site: www.berlinaletalentcampus.de.

From Aug. 20-25, the Sarajevo Film Festival will hold its own Talent Campus based on the Berlin model.

Berlin already has exported the Talent Campus model to festivals in Cape Town, New Delhi and Buenos Aires.
