The UK is already well represented in the line-up selected so far for the forthcoming Children's Film Festival (Kinderfilmfest) sidebar at the 51st Berlin International Film Festival (February 7-18, 2001).

To date, four UK titles have been chosen: modern fairytale There's Only One Jimmy Grimble, directed by John Hay and starring Robert Carlyle, Gina McKee and Ray Winstone; coming-of-age tale The Testimony Of Taliesin Jones, by Martin Duffy, with the late Ian Bannen, Jonathan Price and Geraldine James; Losing Touch by NFTS graduate Sarah Gavron; and the animation film Hooves Of Fire by Richard Goleszowski, a former collaborator of Aardman Animations' Nick Park and Peter Lord.

In addition, festival director Renate Zylla has picked Danish director Natasha Arthy's feature debut Miracle; Moroccan drama Ali Zaoua, about street children in Casablanca from Nabil Ayouch; veteran Indian director Tapan Sinha's 42nd film Anokha Moti about the struggle of good vs evil when a fisherman makes a magical present for his small daughter; and Andre van Duren's adaptation of the Peter van Gestel children's novel Mariken.
