Today, I submitted my application for Berlinale Talents - the talent campus at the Berlin Film Festival. For years I've been wanting to apply, and for one reason or another - eligibility or missing the deadline or not feeling up to the application - I hadn't applied. But this year changes that!
I've been getting a lot of rejections lately, which is nothing particularly new, but I remain (with great effort) undaunted and cautiously optimistic that I will be selected, especially on the strength of the scene I submitted from Middle Ground.
Berlin in February? Glad I don't have anything against the cold!
