Prize contenders at Berlin film festival

The 69th Berlinale, Europe’s first major film festival of the year, awards its Golden and Silver Bear top prizes Saturday with 16 movies from around the world competing.

A six-member jury led by French Oscar winner Juliette Binoche will hand out the trophies at a gala ceremony in the German capital.

The competition originally had 17 entries but “Yi miao zhong” (One Second) by veteran Chinese director Zhang Yimou was pulled from the festival Monday, reportedly due to problems with official censors.

A record seven of the movies vying for awards were made by women directors.
