Berlinale Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian To Step Down

Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian retire after new management revealed.

Alongside executive director Mariette Rissenbeek, Carlo Chatrian became one of two leaders at the “Berlinale,” which, like its counterparts in Cannes and Venice, is one of Europe’s main annual film festivals. The pair took over for longtime festival director Dieter Kosslick.

Rissenbeek’s contract was set to expire in March 2024, and authorities announced earlier this year that she would not be renewing it. Claudia Roth, the culture minister, announced on Thursday that the festival “should in the future once again be led and represented by one person.”

A commission to choose a new leader had been established, according to her office, and Chatrian had stated he was prepared to start “constructive talks with the new directorship on a future role in the new Berlinale team.

However, Chatrian indicated he won’t be staying in a statement published on the festival website on Saturday.

“I thought that continuity could be facilitated if I remained a part of the festival, but, in the new structure as it has been presented, it is quite clear that the conditions for me to continue as Artistic Director no longer exist,” he added.

The festival’s next iteration will mark the conclusion of this worthwhile trip.

The 74th iteration of the festival will take place from February 15–25 in 2024.

Before relocating to Berlin, Chatrian, 51, served as the artistic director of the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.
