berlin poster 2015With under three weeks to go, the Berlin Film Festival has completed its competition roster, adding new titles from Pablo Larraín, Wim Wenders and Oliver Hirschbiegel. In total, 19 of the 23 films in the program will be vying for Golden and Silver Bears. Twenty-one of the titles are world premieres including new addition El Club from Larraín whose 2012 No scored an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. World premiering out of competition is Wenders’ drama Everything Will Be Fine with James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams and Marie-Josée Croze. The veteran helmer nabbed his third Best Documentary Feature Oscar nomination last week with The Salt Of The Earth. He’s also the subject of an homage at this year’s Berlin fest, and will be presented with an Honorary Golden Bear for his lifetime achievement.

Also in an out-of-competition world premiere is Downfall and Diana director Hirschbiegel’s Elser (13 Minutes), a Nazi-era drama about the resistance fighter who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller on November 8, 1939.

The films unveiled today join previously announced titles including Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups, Werner Herzog’s Queen Of The Desert, Jafar Panahi’s Taxi, Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella and Bill Condon’s Mr Holmes (the latter two are not competing). The festival runs from February 5-15 with awards handed out on February 14. The full competition selection is below:
