Tricia Tuttle is set to assume the role of director at the Berlin International Film Festival starting in April 2024. The board of supervisors of the Kulturveranstaltungen des Bundes in Berlin GmbH (KBB), led by Germany’s Minister of State for Culture and the Media, Claudia Roth, officially endorsed Tuttle's appointment today.

Formerly the director of the BFI London Film Festival, Tuttle presently serves as the head of Directing Fiction at the prestigious National Film and TV School in the UK. Over the course of her five-year tenure as a director, she effectively revitalised the BFI London Film Festival by introducing new segments dedicated to television series and immersive cinema. Additionally, Tuttle significantly enhanced audience involvement by expanding digital accessibility and organising diverse events throughout the UK. She earned a Master's degree in Film Studies from the British Film Institute and Birkbeck University, along with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature, Radio, Television and Motion Pictures from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Claudia Roth stated: “Tricia Tuttle brings 25 years of film and film-festival experience with her. Under her leadership, the BFI London Film Festival has not only seen an increase in audience numbers, but has also gained in international profile and significance. She has developed creative strategies to meet the challenges of digitalisation, and has made the festival more colourful, diverse and accessible. Above all, she has convinced us with her clear ideas on the artistic perspectives of the Berlinale, her modern, team-orientated approach to festival management, sustainable support for young talent and contemporary sponsorship models. I am extremely pleased that we were able to win Tricia Tuttle for the directorship of the Berlinale. She is the right choice to lead it into a successful future. I am convinced that Mariëtte Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian will organise the transition well with her. I am also looking forward to supporting them now in making the upcoming Berlinale 2024 a brilliant success.”

In her initial statement following her appointment, Tuttle remarked: “I have attended the Berlinale for many years as a professional and have really come to appreciate it very much. The Berlinale is a leader amongst A-list film festivals – welcoming and inclusive, and brimming with a breathtaking diversity of films. It's a festival that shows cinema as a most vibrant, often magical artform, one which can transform how we see the world and how we understand each other. What an immense thrill and privilege it is to have this opportunity to lead this important festival. I look forward to a very successful Berlinale in 2024, and to joining the team afterwards.”

The KBB's board of supervisors endorsed the recommendation put forth by the selection committee, which includes Oscar winner Edward Berger, actress Sara Fazilat, managing director of the German Film Academy Anne Leppin, producer Roman Paul, head of the Senate Chancellery Berlin Florian Graf and Claudia Roth.

Tuttle will take over the directorship from 1 April 2024. The upcoming Berlinale will take place next year under the direction of Carlo Chatrian and Mariëtte Rissenbeek.
