Berlin Film Festival Adds ‘Damsel’ & More; Sets Euro Debut Of ‘Monster Hunt 2’

Strophic Productions Limited

With the Berlin Film Festival kicking off one month from today, organizers are firming up the Competition and Special sections, adding another 13 titles. Among them are David and Nathan Zellner’s Sundance entry Damsel with Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska. The comedy/western will make its international premiere in competition. Also in competition, German filmmaker Christian Petzold returns to the Berlinale after his triumphant Barbara in 2012; this year he has Transit world premiering.

Out of competition, the fest has added Lance Daly’s Black 47 with Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Stephen Rea, Freddie Fox, Barry Keoghan and Jim Broadbent. And making its European debut in a Berlinale Special Gala slot is Monster Hunt 2, the sequel to China’s 2015 monster hit and directed again by Raman Hui.
