The Berlin International Film Festival -- which kicks off February 7th -- has added a slew of new titles to its Panorama and Berlinale Special programs, including new work form Ken Loach, James Franco, Michael Winterbottom, Shane Carruth, Giuseppe Tornatore and Jane Campion.

Many of them having their international premieres after debuting at Sundance (a notable exception being Ken Loach's doc about post-war Britain and tracks the birth of a new socialism, a world premiere), the newly announced films helped complete the Panorama's narrative film program, which previously was announced to include new work from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Noah Baumbach and Felix van Groeningen.

Here is the list of newly announced titles. The Berlinale runs February 7-17, 2012.
