The 2016 Berlin International Film Festival has announced the first wave of films that will play in its Panorama section. The movies join the previously announced Competition titles, as well as the Coen Brothers’ star-studded “Hail, Caeser,” which will open the festival on February 11. Also announced this morning are the films that will screen in the one-off Teddy30 program, a special curated selection of essential queer films to honor the 30th anniversary of the Teddy award. Teddy30 includes titles from Chantal Akerman and Mary Harron.

While only a quarter of the films that will play the Panorama section have been revealed, one of the biggest in the section is bound to be Rebecca Miller’s “Maggie’s Plan.” The film was one of the most well-received premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival and stars the indie trifecta of Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore. Other major titles include “The Ones Below,” “Don’t Blink, Robert Frank” and the Michael Peña-starring “War on Everyone.”
