Crowds had gathered to see the festival’s opening-night film, Rebecca Miller’s She Came to Me, which stars Peter Dinklage, Marisa Tomei, Joanna Kulig, Brian d’Arcy James and Anne Hathaway. Most were in attendance tonight ahead of the screening.

The student activist group The Last Generation said it was behind the protest, according to Reuters. The incident did not interrupt the red carpet, according to those in attendance.

The red carpet also saw a group of Iranian actresses including Zahra Amir Ebrahimi, Melika Foroutan and Jasmin Tabatabai unfurl banners that said “Women Life Freedom,” part of an effort in solidarity with Iranian women and girls who are fighting for human rights in Iran.

The Berlin Film Festival kicked off tonight and runs through February 26.
