Buyers are lining up at the Berlin Film Festival and European Film Market, now in full swing until February 14. 

The latest acquisition is Sundance Best Director winner (World Cinema Competition) Sophie Hyde's drama "52 Tuesdays," which was shot chronologically one day every week for a year. Visit Films inked a deal with US distributor Kino Lorber, who will release the film in the second half of 2014. It premieres in the Generation sidebar on February 8.

Out of the Berlinale Special section and premiering February 9, Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky's "Watermark" will be distributed in the US by eOne Films International. Other key territories include Australia (Madman), Benelux (Cineart), German speaking Europe (Senator), UK (Soda Pictures) and India (Pictureworks).

"Watermark" is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use.

Yesterday, Sony Pictures Classics made the first major deal of the Berlinale, nabbing US and Latin America rights to the competition title "Aloft." Meanwhile, Film Movement has taken North American rights for "To Kill a Man," also screening in Berlin.
