On Wednesday and Thursday 10th & 11th November, 2021, CICLOPE Festival got back to Kino International, in a very special edition that brought the global industry back together in Berlin. Over 400 producers, creatives, marketers and directors took part, met old and new friends, celebrated the best film craft of the year and got a major boost of energy inspired by content and networking in a pleasant atmosphere.

The line-up included top speakers such as Adam Berg (Smuggler), Jenn Nkiru (Iconolast), Chaka Sobhani (Leo Burnett), Oscar Hudson (Pulse Films), Nadja Lossgott and Nick Hulley (AMVBBDO), Rondell Wescott (Translation), Diana Kunst (Blur Films), Alexander Kalchev (DDB Paris) and Andy Gent (Arch Film Studio), among many others. The talks will be available online soon!
