Berlinale appoints additional jury members

The Berlinale is one of the really big film festivals in the world. Despite Corona, it should now take place again in February. And shortly before the start of the festival, the names of the jury will also be decided.

Berlin – Two weeks before the start of the festival, the Berlinale announced which jury members will decide on this year’s prizes.

The international jury includes the German filmmaker Anne Zohra Berrached (“24 Weeks”), the Japanese director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi and the Danish actress Connie Nielsen (“Wonder Woman”).

It was already known that director M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”) will be the jury president. On Wednesday, the festival management announced the remaining members. Filmmaker Karim Aïnouz (“The Longing of the Gusmão Sisters”), film producer Saïd Ben Saïd and the Zimbabwean filmmaker and author Tsitsi Dangarembga, who was awarded the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade last October, were also appointed.

Alongside Cannes and Venice, the Berlinale is one of the world’s major film festivals. The next edition is scheduled for February 10-20. Despite the increased number of infections, the festival should take place with a cinema audience – although stricter rules should apply.
