Lars Büchel's Lippel's Dream, and Alexis Dos Santos's Unmade Beds make the Berlinale's Generation selection while Lars Jessen's Dorfpunks and Stefan Schaller's To Each His Own are invited to Perspektive Deutsches Kino as selectors finalise their line-ups for 2009.

27 features from 25 countries have been selected in total for Generation's Kplus and 14plus competitions, ten of which are world premieres.

The Generation Kplus programme will open on February 6 in the Zoo Palast with the world premiere of German director Lars Büchel's Lippel's Dream.

Meanwhile Generation 14plus will kick off in the Babylon Cinema with UK director Alexis Dos Santos's Unmade Beds, set in a warehouse squat in London's East End.

Among the titles to be confirmed are world premieres of the European animated film Brendan And The Secret Of The Kells by Tomm Moore and Nora Twomey; Eleni Ampelakiotou's documentary Teenage Response; Rene Bo Hansen's coming-of-age tale The Eagle Hunter's Son; and the Georgian-Kazakh co-production The Other Bank by George Ovashvili.

In addition, Generation will be presenting Sundance's opening film Mary And Max, the debut feature by Australian writer-director Adam Elliot, and Armagan Ballantyne's The Strength Of Water which will have its world premiere in competition at Rotterdam later this month.

Meanwhile, Alfred Holighaus, programme head of the Perspektive Deutsches Kino, has now completed his 12-film selection, inviting a further six titles.

They include Lars Jessen's Dorfpunks, based on Rocko Schamoni's novel of the same name; Peter Dörfler's documentary Catapult about Norbert Witte's life between working at a Berlin funfair and dealing in drugs in Peru; and Stefan Schaller's To Each His Own, starring Carlo Ljubek, Sergej Moya, and Clemens Schick.
