BERLIN -- BERLIN (AP) — Wes Anderson's new movie, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is to open the 2014 Berlin Film Festival.

Festival organizers said Tuesday the event kicks off on Feb. 6 with the world premiere of the movie, which stars Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Jude Law and Edward Norton.

The Berlin event is the first of the year's major European film festivals. Director Dieter Kosslick said: "With unmistakable Wes Anderson charm, this comedy promises to kick things off in a big way."

The latest movie from the director of "Moonrise Kingdom," ''Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" features Fiennes as a concierge at a European hotel in an adventure that involves the theft and recovery of a priceless painting.

The Berlin Film Festival runs from Feb.6-16.
