A Berlinale Special gala presentation will also be given to Davis Guggenheim's music documentary It Might Get Loud, with The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White.
Festivaldirector DieterKosslick has also confirmed the recipients of this year's Berlinale Cameras.
Claude Chabrol will be presented with the distinction on the 50th anniversary of his Golden Bear for Les Cousins in 1959. The award will be made before the screening of his latest film Bellamy.
Veteran German producer Günter Rohrbach, whose credits include The Boat, Schtonk and Aimee Und Jaguar, will also receive the award, this time before the world premiere of his latest production of Hermine Huntgeburth's Effi Briest.
In addition, Kosslick intimated that a third Berlinale Camera is likely to be bestowed on Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira whose latest film Singularidades De Uma Rapariga Loura will have its world premiere in the Berlinale Special section.
This year will see almost 100 German films - or co-productions with Germany - screening in the festival's various sections.
They include nine films in the Competition section, including Maren Ade's Everyone Else, Hans -Christian Schmid's Storm, Stephen Frears' Cheri and Lukas Moodysson's Mammoth as well as 'out of competition' screenings of Tom Tykwer's The International and Stephen Daldry's The Reader.
'Overall, we had never had so many German films at the Berlinale as this year,' Kosslick said. 'This year, you can see the whole spectrum of German production and it shows that German cinema is doing well and is not in a crisis.' he added.
In total, the festival will be screening 386 films in its various sections over ten days between February 5 and 15.
The European Film Market currently has 679 films registered for 1,021 market screenings of which 508 are market premieres. In 2008, 732 films were shown in 1,105 screenings.
