The Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) will host 34 feature films this year, which includes Cherry, Iron Sky, The Convoy, Rent-A-Cat and My Brother The Devil, among others.
Writer-director Stephen Elliot debuts his first feature with Cherry, a story that follows a disturbed woman (Heather Graham) who tangles up with a cocaine-addicted lawyer (James Franco) and the entire pornographic scene of San Francisco.
The movie will hold its world premiere at the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival.
Iron Sky, the Finnish movie that took some time in production, will also have a go on its world premiere at the event to display the sci-fi feature from another debutant director, Timo Vuorensola.
The feature pulled together ears and eyes in the film industry for the unparalleled use of funds from crowds to raise enough money and finish the movie.
Iron Sky’s producers took to the Internet their pleas for donations and investments as a guarantee to secure conventional loans.
Christopher Kirby (Matrix Revolutions) and Germany’s Udo Kier, Gotz Otto and Julia Dietze star in this film.
Thirty-four features are set to deliver their world premiere’s in Berlin’s Panorama this year, with popular features including The Convoy, a powerful revelation at the current police and armed forces in Russia directed by Alexei Mizgirev; Naoko Ogigami’s drama Rent-A-Cat from; and My Brother The Devil from first-time British director Sally El Hosaini.
The 62nd Berlin International Film Festival starts from February 9 to 19.
