The 58th Berlinale Film Festival starts tomorrow. As every year, the city has started to become increasingly packed, and there's a great hustle and bustle about. Journalists, crewmen, wannabe's and Be's pack the area around Potsdamer Platz.
The festival officially opens with 'Shine A Light', Martin Scosese's documentary about the Rolling Stones (I'm watching that tomorrow night). Then 10 days of major Hollywood productions, international films, short films, experimental films etc follow. The festival closes on the 17th with 'Be Kind Rewind' by Michel Gondry.
I'm going to try to watch as much as I can- the queuing procedure is annoying, but chances to get tickets to all except the major premieres are good... :)
