Berlin Film Festival announces dates for 2015

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Berlin International Film Festival has announced its dates for 2015, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The 65th Berlinale will run from Feb. 5-15, 2015. The European Film Market, the industry event that runs concurrent to the festival, will go from Feb. 5-13.

This 2014 Berlinale, which wrapped Feb. 16, was a mixed bag. The festival line-up, including Wes Anderson's opening film, The Grand Budapest Hotel; Richard Linklater's Boyhood and Golden Bear winner Black Coal, Thin Ice from Chinese director Diao Yi'nan, drew critical acclaim. But the general mood at the EFM was muted, with few big deals and much grumbling, particularly from second-tier U.S. sales companies.
