Berlinale zooms in on Magnum

Fest lines up 33 films by or about photographers

BERLIN — The Berlin Intl. Film Festival is teaming up with Magnum Photos to celebrate the agency’s 60th anniversary by showcasing films by and about the cooperative’s members at the upcoming fest.

Dubbed Magnum in Motion, the special sidebar will screen 33 films by and about the agency’s photojournalists.

“A characteristic of the works of Magnum is their critical take on the great events of our times,” said Berli-nale topper Dieter Kosslick.

Founded in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour as a cooperative, Magnum became a one-of-a-kind agency, independent in the editorial market by combining re-sources and recognizing the photographers as owners of their own copyright.

Magnum continues to be wholly controlled by its members and is one of the longest running artists’ cooperatives in the world.

The Berlinale kicks off Feb. 8.
