I decided to open the official thread for Berlin Film Festival 2013. This year it’s February 7th-17th.
Here’s the list of titles in competition for the Golden Bear. I think we still have to know some more movies, because there are 14 or 15 I feel and it’s always 20 or 21.
GLORIA (Sebastian Lelio) Chile/Spain
NOBODY’S DAUGHTER (Hong Sang Soo) South Korea
PARADISE: HOPE (Ulrich Seidl) Austria/France/Germany
CHILD’S POSE (Calin Peter Netzer) Romania
PROMISED LAND (Gus Van Sant) USA
CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915 (Bruno Dumont) France
ON MY WAY (Emmanuelle Bercot) France
AN EPISODE IN THE LIFE OF AN IRON PICKER (Danis Tanovic) Bosnia and Herzegovina
GOLD (Thomas Arsian) Germany
THE NUN (Guillaume Nicloux) France
LAYLA FOURIE (Pia Zarias) Netherlands/Germany/France/South Africa
THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAND (Fredrik Bond) USA
CLOSED CURTAIN (Jafar Panahi) Iran
SIDE EFFECTS (Steven Soderbergh) USA
VIC AND FLO SAW A BEAR (Denis Cote) Canada
It’s going to be the hell of a competition in Best Actress Award!!!!! Juliette Binoche vs. Isabelle Huppert vs. Rooney Mara vs. Melanie Lenz vs. Luminita Gheorgiu vs. Catherine Deneuve!!!!!!
Interested to see how Panahi and Hong Sang Soo do here. And I don’t have many hopes for Soderbergh’s film, but hope to be proved wrong.
