Berlinale 2018   The 68th Berlin International Film Festival will be held in berlin from 15 February to 25 February 2018

The first ten films have been selected for the Competition and the Berlinale Special.

Alongside the previously announced opening film, Isle of Dogs by Wes Anderson, seven productions and co-productions from France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, Serbia, the Russian Federation, and the USA have been invited to take part in the Competition.

So far two productions have been invited to participate in the Berlinale Special. As part of the Official Programme, it screens recent works by contemporary filmmakers, as well as documentaries and works with extraordinary formats.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed its shortlist for Best Foreign Language Film.

Four of the nine films listed for this Oscar premiered at the Berlinale in 2017: the winner of the Golden Bear, On Body and Soul by Ildikó Enyedi (Hungary); the Competition entries Félicité by Alain Gomis (Senegal), which won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize, and A Fantastic Woman by Sebastián Lelio (Chile), which took home the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay; as well as the opening film of the Panorama, The Wound by John Trengove (South Africa).

The 68th Berlin International Film Festival will open at the Berlinale Palast on February 15, 2018 with the world premiere of Wes Anderson’s animated film Isle of Dogs.

Anderson has previously presented three films in the Berlinale Competition: The Royal Tenenbaums (2002), The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2005), and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) which opened the 64th Berlin International Film Festival and won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.

“I’m most delighted that Wes Anderson will kick off the Berlinale Competition again. Isle of Dogs will be the first animated film to open the Festival – a film that will capture audiences’ hearts with its Wes Anderson charm,” says Festival Director Dieter Kosslick.

In 2018, the Berlin International Film Festival will be supported by the French cosmetics brand L’Oréal Paris for the 20th year in succession.

The Berlinale World Cinema Fund is pleased that eight WCF-backed films have had great success this summer:

The feature film Cocote by Dominican director Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias won the award for best film in the new competition of the “Signs of Life” section at the Locarno Festival (Aug. 2 - 12, 2017). In the “Cineasti del presente” section, French-Algerian director Narimane Mari presented her documentary film Le fort des fous, which was also invited to participate in documenta.

And the summer will continue well for WCF-funded films: at the 74th Venice International Film Festival (Aug. 30 – Sept. 9, 2017) four films are set for world premieres:
