For the first time this year, Berlin Airports is supporting the new Berlin film festival "achtung berlin – new berlin film award" by sponsoring the main prizes in the categories "Best Documentary" and "Best Newcomer Film/Short Film".

"Not only is Berlin becoming increasingly attractive as a holiday and business destination, but also as a city of films”, says Burkhard Kieker, Head of Marketing at Berlin Airports, "We are delighted that by sponsoring achtung berlin we are able to support an innovative platform for new, creative films from and about Berlin."

The focus of the third achtung berlin film festival is on the contest section "Made in Berlin-Brandenburg". Current feature films and documentaries are being presented that were produced by a Berlin-Brandenburg film production company or are thematically linked to the German capital region. Film screenings will be accompanied by numerous special programmes, including film talks, a silent film concert and a video bus tour. Up to 10,000 visitors are expected to attend this year's festival.

The film festival will take place from 18–22 April 2007 in the Berlin cinema Babylon Mitte.
