Berlin International Film Festival 1982

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Berlin International Film Festival 1982 took place from February 12 to February 23, 1982.

At the Berlinale, there were excited discussions even before the festival. Festival director Moritz de Hadeln had rejected the American film With the Wind to the West for the competition. The film is about a family who flees the GDR in a hot air balloon. The Springer press condemned this decision as ingratiation to the GDR. Axel Caesar Springer himself organized the German premiere of the film on the opening day of the Berlinale as a counter-event.


The following films were shown in the official competition:
