In a nod both to the city's chilly weather and its zoo's famous polar bears, the Berlin festival drops the iconic animal into a rooftop jacuzzi.

At least someone will be keeping warm in Berlin next year.

Organizers for the Berlin International Film Festival unveiled the official poster for the 2018 event on Thursday, and it features a surprisingly chill polar bear soaking it up in a rooftop jacuzzi.

The bear is the symbol both of the German capital and the festival, whose top prizes are ursine awards in gold and silver.

The choice of a polar bear is a nice touch, giving a nod to the main attraction in Berlin's city zoo.

The hot tub poster is just one of six designs created for next year's festival by Swiss agency Velvet. Each features a different bear posing at, or on, one of the landmarks of the German capital.

The 68th Berlin International Film Festival runs Feb. 15-Feb. 25.
