The 2016 Berlin International Film Festival is inviting series from Denmark, Britain, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. to finish off this year’s Berlinale Special program. The section is designed to put a spotlight on the creativity and variety of forms evident in television series production.
“As we were reviewing this year’s submissions, we once again noticed how their makers embraced experimentation,” said Festival director Dieter Kosslick. “They use the series format for expeditions into new narrative and visual forms in every genre, without losing sight of the realities of society.”
Amidst new titles from the BBC and the Israel Broadcasting Authority, the big addition here for American audiences is most likely “Better Caul Saul” Season 2. The AMC drama confidently stepped away from the shadow of “Breaking Bad” in its acclaimed first season and carved its own unique path. The show’s second season will be having its international premiere in Berlin.
Below are all the new additions to the 2016 Berlinale Special program.
