Berlin Announces First Batch Of Films

Editor, U.S.; Los Angeles, California (@filmbenjamin)
Because February really isn't that far away, the 2014 edition of the Berlin International Film Festival announced 28 films, 19 of which will be playing in their Panorama section, 5 in competition, and 4 in the Berlinale Special section which focuses on a wide ranging selection of docs and films in unique formats such as anthologies. These join the already announced openers The Grand Budapest Hotel and Monuments Men.

And it's an eclectic bunch to be sure, with new work from Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind), John Michael McDonagh (The Guard), Benjamin Heisenberg (The Robber) and Tsai Ming-liang (The Wayward Cloud), among others. Get a lowdown on these first offerings below in the gallery.
