The Berlin Film Festival has started unveiling the competition lineup for its 70th edition, announcing the films that will compete for the coveted Gold and Silver Bears.
Arguably the biggest announcement was the premiere of Pixar’s Onward. The animated original from director Dan Scanlon will screen outside of competition in Berlin– but will still draw crowds.
2020 will be a pivotal year for the Berlinale. It is the first festival under the new management of artistic director Carlo Chatrian and executive director Mariette Rissenbeek.
The 70th Berlin International Film Festival kicks off Feb. 20th and runs through March 1st.
