After announcing last month the first 13 titles that will play in the Panorama sidebar, including TIFF favorites like David Farr’s psychological drama “The Ones Below” and Rebecca Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan,” starring Greta Gerwig and Ethan Hawke, the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival has added to the lineup with 11 narrative features and 5 documentaries.

Opening the Panorama section will be Argentine director Daniel Burman’s “El Rey del One.” Other highlights from the new wave of titles include the international premiere of Ira Sachs’ highly anticipated “Little Men,” which will first debut at Sundance later this month,

“With 30 films confirmed to date, of which 24 are fictional and six will run in Panorama Dokumente, two-thirds of this year’s Panorama has now been announced,” organizers said. “An extra 17 works will screen in the Teddy30 anniversary program. The entire program will be finalized in the coming days.”

The festival has also announced plans to honor Killer Films founder Christine Vachon, who just received another Oscar nomination for producing Todd Haynes’ “Carol.” Vachon will receive a special Teddy Award for her 20 years of excellence in the business. 

Below are all of the new additions to the Berlinale Panorama Lineup.
