Berlin Film Festival 2022 announces debut titles – The Hollywood Reporter


The Berlin International Film Festival has unveiled the first films of its 2022 edition, which will run from February 10 to 22.

Berlin has announced the first films of its Panorama, Generations, Forum, Forum Expanded and Berlinale Specials program for the 72nd festival.

The forger, a World War II drama starring Dark star Louis Hofmann will make his Berlinale Specials lineup debut as a featured gala. The film, by director Maggie Peren (Ocean color), sees Hofmann play the role of a Jewish man living in 1940s Berlin who uses his skills as a document forger to hide in plain sight and try to save others with false identities.

Other special Berlinale galas include Peter Flinth’s Against the ice, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Joe Cole, Heida Reed and Charles Dance, and About Jeanne, a French drama starring Isabelle Huppert and Lars Eidinger from director Laurent Larivière.

Some of the panorama’s titles include the world premieres of Tim Sutton’s film Taurus with Megan Fox, Scoot McNairy, Colson Baker and Ruby Rose, the Italian feature film In my name by Nicolò Bassetti and Talk about the weather by German director Annika Pinske.

French function recruits directors Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai, The quiet girl from the Dutch film by Irish director Colm Bairéad and Mascha Halberstad Oink are among the world premieres of the Generations selection for films for children and adolescents.

Director M. Night Shyamalan will chair the 2022 Berlinale International Jury, which will choose the Gold and Silver Bear winners from the festival competition titles.

Organizers in Berlin said the 2022 festival schedule would be “roughly similar” in size to the festival’s pre-COVID-19 edition in 2020. The shorts, which have been removed from the Generation sidebar for this year’s festival, will return to the section in 2022.

The European Film Market (EFM), which runs from February 10 to 17, will once again take place at the Gropius Bau in Berlin and the Marriott Hotel. EFM 2022 will be a hybrid event, also offering online formats and screenings for professionals unable to attend in person. Likewise, the industry-focused sections – namely the Berlinale Series Market, February 14-16; the Berlinale co-production market (February 12-16); Berlinale Talents (February 12-17); and the World Cinema Fund – will combine in-person sessions with online offerings.

The Sundance Film Festival confirmed last week that it will also return in person for 2022, unveiling its reduced lineup, which will include that of Lena Dunham. Pointed stick, Do i agree? directors Stephanie Allynne and Tig Notaro and 892 with John Boyega, Connie Britton and the late Michael K. Williams.
