'Back for Good,' directed by Mia Spengler, will open the section of features from German film students.

The Berlin Film Festival on Wednesday unveiled the first seven films that will screen next year as part of its Perspektive Deutsches Kino section, a sidebar dedicated to films from German film students.

The titles announced include four full-length features: Back for Good from Mia Spengler, Paths from Chris Miera, Julian Radlmaier’s Self-criticism of a Bourgeois Dog and the documentary Ironhead from director Tian Dong.

Three medium-length films will also screen in the Berlin Perspektive sidebar: Container by Sebastian Lang, Mikel from director Cavo Kernich and Felicitas Sonvilla's Tara.

Berlin will announce the complete Perspektive Deutsches Kino program in January.

The 67th Berlin Film Festival runs Feb. 9-19.
