Organizers of the Berlin film festival say this year's event will feature new movies from U.S. directors Noah Baumbach and Nicole Holofcener. The world premiere of Baumbach's "Greenberg," starring Ben Stiller among others, was among several festival entries announced Wednesday. Baumbach wrote and directed 2005's "The Squid and the Whale."

Holofcener's "Please Give" will have its international premiere in Berlin, as will Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's "Howl."

Organizers say the festival will include a world premiere of French director Benoit Delepine's "Mammuth," starring Gerard Depardieu.

The Berlin event is the first of the year's major European film festivals. It runs Feb. 11-21.
