BERLIN — Nancy Meyers’ comedy “Something’s Gotta Give” has been added to the strong lineup of U.S. movies at the Berlin Intl. Film Festival, screening out of competition in the fest’s main section.

The fest runs Feb. 5-15.

Meanwhile, Alan Parker, helmer and chairman of the U.K. Film Council, will be a tutor at the Berlinale Talent Campus along with fellow U.K. directors Stephen Frears and Mike Leigh. The filmmakers will share their expertise with up-and-coming filmmakers and host the acting workshop “Actors on Directors and Directors on Actors” at the film fest’s educational platform, which runs Feb. 7-12.

Parker has also been tapped as the keynote speaker at the Global Film Finance Berlin 2004 media conference, to be held Feb. 6, independent of the Berlinale.
