Nineteen films have been announced for the Berlin International Film Festival's Panorama program. 

New films from Michel Gondry, Kutluğ Ataman, Robert Lepage, Sophie Fillières, Benjamin Heisenberg, Maximilian Erlenwein, John Michael McDonagh and Tsai Ming-liang are included in the list, while Jalil Lespert's "Yves Saint Laurent" has been announced as the opening night section. With "Yves Saint Laurent," Berlin’s flagship cinema, the Zoo Palast, will be re-inaugurated as a Berlinale venue after extensive renovations on February 7, 2014.
Another notable relocation announced today was that the queer film-oriented TEDDY Award ceremony will go down for the first time in its 28-year history in the "baroque setting" of the Komische Oper Berlin.
