London — Berlin Film Festival section Panorama has added further films to its lineup, which will include “Indignation,” the directorial debut of producer James Schamus. Panorama also revealed that a Special Teddy Award, which celebrates gay and lesbian filmmaking, will be awarded to Christine Vachon, one of the producers of “Carol.”
The Panorama Special program will open on Feb. 12 with Daniel Burman’s “El rey del Once” (The Tenth Man), and the previously announced “War on Everyone” by John Michael McDonagh. “El rey del Once,” the festival said, is “a sensitive tale that bursts with vitality, a loving portrait of multi-layered life in Once, the Jewish quarter of Buenos Aires.” Burman’s debut film, “A Chrysanthemum Bursts in Cinco Esquinas,” opened the main program of Panorama in 1998, and his 2004 film “Lost Embrace” won two Silver Bears in Berlin.
