Keep filling up the list of titles for the Competition program, the organizers of this year's Berlin international film festival has firmly included three more U.S productions of "Bordertown", "Letters from Iwo Jima", and "The Walker" into the lineup, placing them alongside the previously announced U.S entries of "The Good Shepherd" and "The Good German."

Unlike the Gregory Nava-directed flick, however, the other two will be screened out of competition as "Iwo Jima" has already opened in North America and Japan while "The Walker" is in fact the work of Paul Schrader, the president of the Berlinale jury this year.

Apart from the three, the fetival has also placed in another five features of foreign production into the program. Two of them are France's entries namely "Les Temoins" (The Witnesses) and "Ne touchez pas la hache" (Don't Touch the Axe) while the rest three are German-Austrian co-production "Die Faelscher" ("The Counterfeiters"), Italy's "In Memoria di me" (In Memory of Myself), and the Czech/Slovak Republic's "Obsluhoval jsem anglickeho krale" (I Served the King of England).
