Last Friday, the newest directors of the Berlinale Film Festival were announced. Beginning their tenures in time for the 2020 edition, Carlo Chatrian and Mariette Rissenbeek will herald a new era for the festival as it celebrates its 70th anniversary.

We spoke to Ekkehard Knörer, Co-founder and Editor-in-chief of Cargo film magazine, about his expectations for the new directors and how he thinks their leadership will impact the choice of films.
