    The curtain has gone up at the Berlin Film Festival. It's one of Europe's leading cinema showcases, with everything from Hollywood blockbusters to art-house films.

    This year's programme is emphasising cultural diversity. It is also expected that the #MeToo campaign will be highlighting sexual harassment in the film world.
