Half of the films screening as part of the Panorama section of the upcoming 60th anniversary of the Berlin International Film Festival were announced this morning.
Back with new works are Lothar Lambert, Peter Kern, directorial duo Jacques Martineau and Olivier Ducastel, Isao Yukisada, E J-Yong and Sebastien Lifshitz. Young feature filmmakers are represented by Mat Whitecross, Anahi Berneri and Scud, while the documentaries of Lucy Walker, Tamara Trampe and Johann Feindt, and Michael Stock are all on tap for the Panorama Dokumente.
The Panorama Dokumente and the complete feature film programme will be announced towards the end of January. All of the films are screening as either world or European premieres. The Berlin International Film Festival runs February 10-21, 2010, and indieWIRE will be on the scene.
