    Berlin Film Festival on 6th February

    Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated "The Grand Budapest Hotel" will open the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival, it was announced today. On February 6th at the Berlinale Palast, the film will have its world premiere.

    “We are very delighted that Wes Anderson will open the 64th Berlinale with his new film, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,'" said Festival Director Dieter Kosslick. "With unmistakeable Wes Anderson charm, this comedy promises to kick things off in a big way."

    The film details the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a "legendary concierge" at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa ( Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The cast of characters they encounter include F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson.

    Wes Anderson has previously presented two films in the Berlinale Competition: "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2002) and "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2005). "The Grand Budapest Hotel" was shot on location in Germany (mainly in Gorlitz and other parts of Saxony, and also at Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam).

    Fox Searchlight will release "The Grand Budapest" Hotel in US cinemas on March 7, 2014.
