60th Berlinale: First Films in the Panorama Section

In this anniversary year, old and new masters as well as newcomers define the programme of the Panorama section. Back with new works are not only Lothar Lambert and Peter Kern, but also directorial duo Jacques Martineau and Olivier Ducastel, as well as Isao Yukisada, E, J-Yong and Sébastien Lifshitz. Recent young feature films are represented by Mat Whitecross, Anahí Berneri and Scud, while the documentaries of Lucy Walker, Johann Feindt/Tamara Trampe and Michael Stock are exemplary for the impressive Panorama Dokumente.

After visiting Asia, North and South America, and Europe to select films, half of the 58 works in the programme are now certain. They take a lively look at world cinema creations during the recent crisis and reveal that the documentary is again putting in a strong showing in 2010: documentaries make up about one third of the programme. From the start, the Panorama’s mission has been to discover films for the coming arthouse season and to provide the market with inspiration.

Once more, over 20,000 moviegoers will participate during the Berlinale in the Panorama Audience Award that is to be presented on February 21, 2010.

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. To date, the following films have been confirmed for the Main Programme, Panorama Special and Panorama Dokumente:
