This year's Berlinale kicked off in fine style with Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones documentary Shine A Light.

Butthe story of this year's event has been that - at least for buyers - the festival line-up was in danger of being upstaged by the market.

Focus inevitably turned to the EFM following a perceived lack of mainstream appeal in festival entries and the fact that a number of competition titles had been viewed in advance or pre-sold.

As the Berlinale and the European Film Market draws to a close, Screen looks at these issues and the films, the deals and developments that mark out this year's event.
