BERLIN, Germany – The 66th Berlinale, Europe's first major film festival of the year, starts Thursday, February 11 with 23 international productions screening in the main showcase.

Eighteen pictures will vie for the Golden Bear top prize at the event which runs from February 11 to 21, with a jury led by 3-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep selecting the best film. Nineteen of the main features are world premieres and two are directors' feature debuts.
