Berlinale 2015 Adds Hartley, Malick, Greenaway, Gay Drama 'I Am Michael' Starring Franco and Quinto

The 65th Berlinale runs February 5 to 15, 2015, and on the heels of this week’s competition announcement, the fest has unveiled the first 19 titles that will screen in its internationally focused Panorama section. Full competition and Panorama lineups below, with official festival language.

Highlights in the Panorama section include “To Love Without Demands,” a documentary on prolific German auteur Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Justin Kelly’s gay civil rights drama and Sundance premiere “I Am Michael” starring James Franco and Zachary Quinto and Hal Hartley’s latest film “Ned Rifle” starring Liam Aiken and Aubrey Plaza, which concludes the trilogy started by “Henry Fool” (1997) and “Fay Grim” (2007).

In the competition lineup, we’ll see Terrence Malick’s latest “Knight of Cups” (which got a gorgeous new trailer yesterday), avant-garde Brit filmmaker Peter Greenaway’s “Eisenstein in Guanajuato” and more, plus Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella” screening out of competition. More program information forthcoming.
