WOLF is excited to handle the following titles at the 2023 Berlinale. Please stand by for our full line up including screenings dates and talent availability, coming soon. But freel free to already let us know if you are interested in any of our titles.

AFIRE (Roter Himmel) by Christian Petzold (Competition)

Premiere: Wednesday, February 22
(Dates are tentative. Please check for final program on the Berlinale Website)
A small holiday house by the baltic sea. The days are hot and it hasn’t rained in weeks. Four young people come together, friends old and new. As the parched forests around them begin to ignite, so do their emotions. Happiness, lust and love; but also jealousies, resentments and tensions. Meanwhile the forests burn. And before long, the flames are there.
The new film by Christian Petzold, featuring Paula Beer (Silver Bear Best Actress for UNDINE).

LIMBO by Ivan Sen (Competition)

Premiere: Thursday, February 23
(Dates are tentative. Please check for final program on the Berlinale Website)
Travis, a jaded detective, arrives in the remote outback town of Limbo to investigate the cold case murder of local Indigenous girl Charlotte Hayes 20 years ago. As truths about the murder begin to unfold, the detective gains a new insight into the unsolved case from the victim’s fractured family, the surviving witnesses and the reclusive brother of the chief suspect. A poignant, intimate journey into the complexities of loss and the impact of the justice system on Aboriginal families in Australia.
From the director of BENEATH CLOUDS (Silver Bear Winner, Berlinale 2002), TOOMELAH (Cannes Un Certain Regard 2011), MYSTERY ROAD (TIFF 2013) and GOLDSTONE (TIFF 2015). Starring Simon Baker.

FAMILY TIME (Mummola) by Tia Kouvo (Encounters)

Premiere: Monday, February 20
(Dates are tentative. Please check for final program on the Berlinale Website)
A family comes together for the holidays, but before long starts falling apart. Just like every year, middle-aged sisters Susanna and Helena visit their parents' house with their families. But just like every year, Grandpa Lasse drinks too much, Grandma Ella has to take care of everyone, the kids are fed up and the sisters argue about the most pointless things. After Christmas, everyone separates and returns to their everyday lives. Tia Kouvo’s bitingly humorous, universally poignant debut digs into a question we can all relate to: Are we destined to remain stuck in the same patterns or can we ever change - and at last become a happy family?

FEMME by Sam H. Freeman & Ng Choon Ping (Panorama)
Premiere: Sunday, February 19
(Dates are tentative. Please check for final program on the Berlinale Website)
Jules’ life and career as a drag queen is destroyed by a homophobic attack. But when he re-encounters his attacker, the deeply-closeted Preston, in a gay sauna, he is presented with a chance to exact revenge. Unrecognisable out of his wig and make-up, Jules infiltrates Preston’s life, and in doing so, discovers power in a different kind of drag...

Starring George MacKay (1917) and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (CANDYMAN).
