Previewing the Berlin International Film Festival

The 61st Berlin International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow and Deutsche Welle previews what is in store for filmgoers:

The themes of family, identity and society link this year's films, largely drawn from the ranks of independent movie makers. Thirty-nine films--many with a documentary focus--explore the grave social changes and questions people from across the world face day to day.
The Coen Brothers commence the festival with their film “True Grit”, while Wim Wenders and Werner Herzog screen documentaries and Hungarian director Béla Tarr and the French animation filmmaker Michel Ocelot also present new work. 

Hopefully a number of the films will find their way to theatres here in the U.S.
