Berlinale festival director Dieter Kosslick and jury president Meryl Streep as well as countless movie stars also attended the opening gala on Thursday.

In addition to the three-time Oscar-winner and U.S. actress Meryl Streep, the seven-member international panel included German actor Lars Eidinger, British film critic Nick James, French photographer Brigitte Lacombe, British actor Clive Owe, Italian actress Alba Rohrwacher as well as Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska.

From Feb. 11 to 21, a total of 434 films from 77 countries and regions will be screened at the festival, among which 18 films will run for the golden and silver bears awards.

Chinese film "Crosscurrent" will compete at Berlinale this year.
