The annual Berlin film festival will open next month with the premiere of a new movie from Chinese director Wang Quan'an, "Apart Together."
Organizers said Tuesday that the latest film from Wang — whose "Tuya's Marriage" won Berlin's top Golden Bear award in 2007 — will kick off the festival Feb. 11.
The Berlin event — in its 60th edition this year — is the first of the year's major European film festivals. It runs through Feb. 21.
The closing film will be Japanese director Yoji Yamada's "About Her Brother," screening out of competition.
Organizers have already announced that this year's festival will feature premieres of Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer" and Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island."
