Berlinale Locks in Half of Panorama 2011 Slate

Berlinale Locks in Half of Panorama 2011 Slate

The Berlin International Film Festival has unveiled half of the slate of films playing in its Panorama section. All films are screening as either world or European premieres.

Notable films on this year’s docket include new works from José Padilha (who won the Golden Bear in 2009 for “Tropa de elite”), Lee Tamahori (“Once Were Warriors”) and Macedonian director Milcho Manchevski. Also returning to the Panorama section are documentary filmmakers Elfi Mikesch, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Cyril Tuschi and Rosa von Praunheim. Documentaries make up about a third of the programme.

In addition to the lineup, celebrating its 25th anniversary at this year’s edition is the Queer Teddy Award, which evolved out of the Panorama section. The award may be awarded to films from any section of Berlinale. Exclusive to Panorama is the Panorama Audience Award. Over 20,000 moviegoers are expected to vote for the winner, to be presented on February 20, 2011.

Below is the list of confirmed films for the Main Promamme, Panorama Special and Panorama Dokumente:
