Nora Fingscheidt’s The Outrun, a Scotland-set drama starring Saoirse Ronan, will have its international premiere at the 2024 BerlinInternational Film Festival, screening in Berlin’s Panorama section after its world premiere bow in Sundance.
The drama is adapted from Amy Liptrot’s best-selling memoir about a recovering alcoholic — played by four-time Oscar nominee Ronan — who returns to her home on the windswept wilderness of Scotland’s Orkney Islands. Fingscheidt made her debut with System Crasher at the 2019 Berlinale. Her English-language follow-up was 2021’s The Unforgivable, a Netflix drama starring Sandra Bullock.
The Outrun is among the first 11 titles picked by Panorama for its 2024 lineup.
