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.
