The Berlin International Film Festival has announced the first 20 titles of its Panorama Program.

Alongside directors like Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Volker Schlöndorff, Cao Hamburger, Pen-ek Ratanaruang and Teona Strugar Mitevska, this year’s feature films include new works by Ira Sachs, Cheryl Dunye, Kirsten Sheridan and Srdjan Dragojevic as well as by new filmmakers such as Umut Dag from Austria, Helena Klotz from France, Faouzi Bensiada from Morocco and Ngoc Dang Vu from Vietnam.

The Panorama section, which contains the Main Programme, Panorama Special and Panorama Dokumente series, will screen some 50 films in all.

The 62nd Berlin International Film Festival runs February 9-19.

Full press release and announced titles below.

Berlinale 2012: First Films in the Panorama Programme
 
After scouting extensively for films all around the world as well as viewing a major portion of the films sent to Berlin, a good third of the Panorama’s feature film programme has been selected. Out of a tremendous range of films numbering in the thousands, 20 titles are now certain. The Panorama section with its Main Programme, Panorama Special and Panorama Dokumente series will screen some 50 films in all.
 
Two works by European directors are opening the Panorama Special:
 
Tony Gatlif is returning to Panorama with Indignados. Inspired by Stéphane Hessel’s bestseller “Time for Outrage!” this French film allows viewers, in both enacted scenes and real situations, to see the recent protests of our times through the eyes of an illegal woman immigrant. She experiences the Occupy movement, the poverty of those who share her fate, and the dissatisfaction of a young generation of European society in revolt. Previously, Gatlif presented in Panorama his films Rue du départ in 1987 and Swing in 2002.
 
As in her second feature film, Ono (Stranger), which screened in Panorama in 2005, Polish director Malgoska Szumowska once again radically probes gender relations. With Juliette Binoche in the lead, Elles leaves much room for contemplation and in a masterly fashion reveals the underlying longing that apparently every notion of relationship, and especially that of the nuclear family, attempts to conceal.
 
In 2012, the opening films of the Panorama Special will be screening at the Kino International.

More than 20,000 moviegoers will again participate in the Panorama Audience Award that will be presented in CinemaxX 7 on February 19, the last day of the Festival.
 
The films in the Panorama Dokumente series will be announced in the next press release, in mid January; the complete Panorama programme will follow at the end of January.
