Berlin Panorama Adds Films by James Schamus, Ira Sachs; ‘Carol’ Producer Christine Vachon to Receive Award

Berlin Panorama Adds Films by James Schamus, Ira Sachs; 'Carol' Producer Christine Vachon to Receive Award

Former Focus Features CEO James Schamus’ directorial debut, “Indignation”—which premieres at Sundance later this month—is among the new additions to the Berlinale’s Panorama section. Also heading from to Berlin after bowing in Park City are Ira Sachs’ “Little Men,” with Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle, and Andrew Neel and David Gordon Green’s Sundance competition title “Goat,” starring Nick Jonas.

Flying under the radar is the documentary “Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures,” from Fenton Bailey and Michael Barbato (“Inside Deep Throat,” “Party Monster”), as well as Argentine director Daniel Burman’s “The Tenth Man” and Aaron Brookner’s archival portrait of his late uncle, Howard Brookner, whose own filmmaking career was cut short by AIDS in 1989.

As part of the 30th anniversary celebration of its queer film prize, the Teddy Award, the festival will present a special honor to producer Christine Vachon, whose Killer Films label has been instrumental in bringing LGBTQ and independent cinema to audiences in the U.S. and around the world—including Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” which received six Oscar nomination Thursday morning.
