Shooting Stars 2009 at Berlin Film Festival

by admin

I just spent four whirlwind days at the Berlinale, one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals, to partake in the Shooting Stars program.

European Film Promotion (EFP) organizes the event aimed at showcasing ten of Europe’s most exciting up-and-coming young actors to casting directors, producers, directors and the press. This was the second year I was invited to participate in Shooting Stars and what an amazing program it was.

This year’s Shooting Stars were

Cyron Melville of Denmark
Samuli Vauramo of Finland
Hafsia Herzi of France
David Kross of Germany
Orsi Tóth of Hungary
Sarah Bolger of Ireland
Alba Caterina Rohrwacher of Italy
Verónica Echegui of Spain
Céline Bolomey of Switzerland
Carey Mulligan of United Kingdom

You can learn more about the actors and watch clips from their films on the Shooting Stars website.

Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we will have the opportunity to work together in the future.
