‘Someday We'll Tell Each Other Everything', by Emily Atef, has been shortlisted under the Competition section, and will therefore compete for the prestigious Golden and Silver Bears. The other 17 films will compete for other Berlinale and independent prizes. These films have been supported by the MEDIA strand of the Creative Europe programme both in their development and distribution.

The winners of this year's festival will be announced on Saturday 25 February during the closing ceremony.

The Commission will also be present at the European Film Market (EFM) to engage with the industry and discuss current challenges and opportunities. On Friday 17 February, during the event “Your European audience at a glance”, the Commission will present the first results of a multi-country consumer/audience research conducted over the past year focusing on the tastes and preferences of the audience on audiovisual content. The results will serve for the preparation of the "Media Outlook", a thorough media market report to improve our knowledge base of the media sectors, that the Commission plans to publish in spring 2023.
