Organisers have not said whether Madonna will travel to the premiere
Madonna's debut movie as a director will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

Filth and Wisdom, which stars Eugene Hutz, Richard E Grant and Stephen Graham, will be shown out of competition, organisers have said.

It is not known whether the 49-year-old singer will go to the German capital to promote the short film.

The event, which runs from 7 to 17 February, is the first of the year's main European film festivals.

British coming-of-age story Boy A, directed by John Crowley and starring Peter Mulland and Andrew Garfield, will also be screened out of competition.
