ABOUT CICLOPE

Even though the Covid-19 outbreak prevented us from celebrating our usual conference in Berlin in 2020, CICLOPE Festival got back to Kino International on 2021, 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.

In 2022 we are still willing to encourage meaningful conversations and to award the most well-crafted work of the year. Therefore, in the last quarter of the year, CICLOPE is sharing exclusive online content and inviting you to join us for a two-day conference event and our live awards ceremony. Winners will be announced on Thursday, November 10th.

The 10 (ten) best-ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists. In the second round of judging, the Executive Jury will discusses the finalist pieces on a Zoom meeting and award one Gold, one Silver and one Bronze trophy in each category. For the third and final round, the Executive jury will fly to Berlin to discuss personally the Grand Prix winners for the best work of the year.
