Full Berlinale Panorama Fiction Program Includes Double the James Franco

The Berlin Film Festival has now announced its entire fiction slate for the always fascinating Panorama program. Yes, the first thing that sticks out is that James Franco has two films playing, including his riff on the cut footage from William Friedkin's Cruising, Interior. Leather Bar. But hey! There are 31 features from 23 different countries in this lineup. And while I'm certainly excited to catch up with Franco and some Sundance Highlights (particularly Upstream Color), I'm even more pumped to discover new work from exciting international filmmakers.

The entire lineup is below with the recently added titles first, and the previously announced titles at the bottom.
