Several U.S. helmers are making their way to the festival in the northern city of Oldenburg, which ends Sunday.

James Merendino will be on hand to present actioner “Punk!,” in which German star Til Schweiger plays a supporting role. Jonathan Gems’ “The Treat” and Jon Jacobs’ “Lucinda’s Spell” will have their world premieres in Oldenburg.
