TALK OF THE TOWN CREATIVE I From apps and design workshops to film and media agencies – Berlin inspires new ideas and provides space for many facets of the creative industries Text: Simone Fendler THE “NEW, OLD” BERLINER UNION FILM CAMPUS With its great view of the famous Tempelhof Airfield, the Berliner Union Film Campus has been one of Berlin’s most prominent film and TV production sites for over 100 years. Popular contemporary TV shows, including “Circus Halli- Galli,” “Ku’Damm 56” and the children’s series “Siebenstein” are made on the very spot where Marlene Dietrich and Liza Minnelli once shot their award-winning film classics. With clients and partners such as YouTube Space Berlin, the Met Film School and Cinephon, the campus is set to grow even further and continue to be a major player on Berlin’s film and TV scene. The campus’ future strategy includes the expansion of sound post-production and a strong focus on international projects. Indeed, the team is eager to create an even more versatile space for the most creative minds in the industry, for example, by means of joint content-development projects and opening up the site to further creative sectors, such as the games industry. 14
