Berlin & Beyond opens October 20th and runs through October 26th in San Francisco at the Castro Theatre with an additional encore day in San Jose on the 29th, screening 29 films overall, including three international premieres, and two North American premieres. Highlights of this year's festival including Opening Night film "Almanyaï¾ - Welcome to Germany," Closing Night presentation Andres Veiel's "If Not Us, Who," and the festival's first late-night entry, award-winning Swiss horror entry "Sennentutschi."
