Berlin International Film Festival 2011: complete lineup for the Forum program

The Berlin International Film Festival (German: Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin), one of the world’s leading film festivals and most reputable media events has just announced their complete

lineup for the Forum program this year, and it looks incredible once again.

With 274,000 tickets sold and 487,000 admissions, it is considered the largest publicly-attended film festival worldwide. Up to 400 films are shown in several sections, representing a comprehensive array of the cinematic world. Around twenty films compete for the awards called the Golden and Silver Bears. Basically it is the place to be if you work in the business. The European Film Market (EFM), a film trade fair held simultaneously to the Berlinale, is a major industry meeting for the international film circuit once a year. The trade fair serves distributors, film buyers, producers, financiers and co-production agents. The festival has established a cosmopolitan character integrating art, glamour, commerce and a global media attention. The 61st Berlin International Film Festival will be held from 10 to 20 February 2011. The jury will be presided by Isabella Rossellini.
