Film stars from around the world have arrived in Germany for the 63rd annual Berlin Film Festival.
A diverse selection of movies are competing for the coveted Golden Bear award.
The Berlinale festival is renowned for featuring the work of women, ethnic minorities and campaigners. It tries to put movies from outside the mainstream on an equal footing with big-budget heavyweights.
