Thomas Vinterberg’s Submarino, Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg (pictured) and Benoit Delephine’s Mammuth are among 12 additional world premieres that will screen in the official selection at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

An 18-strong programme has been added to the seven titles announced in December, including Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and Roman Polanski’s The Ghost Writer.

The latest line-up also includes the world premiere of Quanan Wang’s Apart Together (Tuan Yuan), which will also open the festival on February 11, Oskar Roehler’s Jud Süß - Film ohne Gewissen and Pernille Fischer Christensen’s A Family.

The programme also includes six international premieres including Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Howl, Nicole Holofcener’s Please Give, The Killer Inside Me, by Michael Winterbottom, and About Her Brother (Otouto) by Yoji Yamada, which will also close the festival on February 20.

There are two debut films in the official selection: Burhan Qurbani’s Shahada, the first production by the Berlin-based Bittersuess Pictures, and Romanian filmmaker Florin Serban’s If I Want To Whistle, I Whistle.
