Alongside the Competition, also revealed today was the Encounters line-up, featuring films by Peter Strickland and Bertrand Bonello.
The Berlinale Special program was also completed, with films by Andrew Dominik and Dario Argento.
As previously reported, the fest has changed its format for 2022 due to ongoing pandemic-related uncertainty. The European Film Market has moved online, while the festival is continuing with an in-person event, albeit in a condensed format, with every premiere screening taking place in the first six days of the event, and the award ceremony being hosted on February 16.
Further tweaks include cinema capacity being limited to 50%, masks and Covid passes being mandatory, and no festival parties being sanctioned. Read more about the changes here.
