A flurry of press releases from the Berlinale today, and the one you may find most interesting isn't the newsiest. You already knew that the Retrospective, The Red Dream Factory, will be featuring Eisenstein's October (Oktjabr, 1928), but today's announcement has details on the new restoration and the presentation on February 10: "Conducted by Frank Strobel, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra will perform the original score as composed by Edmund Meisel."

The second release of the day reveals that 12 titles have been added to the lineup of the Berlinale Special program, in addition to the six previously announced (here and here). Seems we can assume the first three events will be happening on Potsdamer Platz:

Screenings at the Kino International:

At the Friedrichstadt-Palast:

And at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele:

  • The international premiere of Alison Klayman's documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. Trailer.
  • The international premiere of Bassam Mortada's documentary Althawra… Khabar (Reporting … A Revolution). Egypt.
  • The world premiere of Klaartje Quirijns's documentary Anton Corbijn Inside Out. Netherlands.
  • The world premiere of Alvaro Longoria's documentary Hijo de las nubes, La última colonia (Sons of the Clouds, The Last Colony). Spain.
  • The world premiere of Chris Kenneally's documentary Side by Side. US.
  • Already announced: Death Row (USA), the documentary series by Werner Herzog, and Angelina Jolie's In the Land of Blood and Honey.

And finally today (at least so far), a list of the 39 new projects seeking to seal the deal at the Berlinale Co-Production Market 2012.
