Dieter Kosslick’s world of food and films

From Swabia to the red carpet

He bursts into the make-up suite waving Brezels. “I hope there will be enough to go round!” He’s been down to a Swabian bakery. “They told me they wouldn’t be opening until ten, but I was there at nine and they let me in.” A Swabian bakery in Berlin! The Swabians, I should add, come from Germany’s far away south-west, the area around Stuttgart. It’s the region where Dieter Kosslick spent his childhood (much of it, we discover, hanging around in a very atmospheric local bakery). Since then, he’s come far: these days he’s the director of the Berlin Film Festival. And he’s my latest guest on Talking Germany.

Dieter Kosslick’s Movie Pick

It was of course fascinating to hear what the director of one of the world’s leading film festivals would choose as his FMOAT.
