Athens plays host to Berlin

Event to include Berlinale's new 14Plus section

BERLIN — The Berlinale is going Greek.

Athens-based Cultural Action, with the support of the Berlin Film Festival, is setting up a seven-day tribute to the fest in the Greek capital April 1-7.

Organizers aim to re-create the Berlinale’s unique atmosphere in Athens with a “best of” selection of the Panorama sidebar, with 28 films from 20 countries that have screened in the section in the past five years.

Titles include “Berlin Is in Germany” (Germany), “Beautiful Boxer” (Thailand), “Cachorro” (Spain) and “Walking on Water” (Australia). Panorama director Wieland Speck will be in Athens for the opening of the tribute.

Event also will include a selection of the Berlinale’s new youth-skewed 14Plus section, with screenings planned for school groups.

Gay-themed pics that have won the Berlinale’s Teddy Award, including “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Talk Straight” and “Wild Side,” will screen after midnight in Athens.
