BERLIN (AP) -- New films from Terrence Malick and Peter Greenaway are among the first movies chosen to screen at the Berlin International Film Festival in February.

Festival organizers said Monday that Malick's "Knight of Cups," starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman, will have its world premiere in the event's competition. British director Greenaway will bring new movie "Eisenstein in Guanajuato" to the festival.

Other entries include a directorial debut from Jayro Bustamante of Guatemala, "Ixcanul Volcano," along with films from German director Andreas Dresen, "As We Were Dreaming," and Britain's Andrew Haigh, "45 Years."

The Berlin event, which runs Feb. 5-15, is the first of the year's major European film festivals. American director Darren Aronofsky will head the jury that chooses winners of its Golden Bear award and other honors.
