The Berlin International Film Festival (February 9 to 19, 2012) and the French-German Youth Office, is once again giving young film-lovers a chance to help decide who receives the “Dialogue en perspective” Award. For the second time, a jury member from a third country – Slovakia – is taking part.
The seven jurors are:
• Deniz Sertkol, 26, European mediastudies, Berlin
• Franziska Hessberger, 25, freelance at Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Münster
• Philipp Wolf, 24, studies literature, culture and media, Siegen Weidenau
• Sandra Jumel, 22, European and intercultural studies, Sautron (Nantes)
• Gustave Shaïmi, 20, European and film studies, Montélimar
• Baptiste Cogitore, 25, studies German-French journalism, Strasbourg
• Matus Krajnak, 23, studies filmdirection, Presov (Bratislava), Slovakia
This year, the jury will be chaired by director, actor and screenwriter Jan Henrik Stahlberg.
The aim of the film award for the DFJW is to promote dialogue between young German and French people and to bring them closer to current German cinema. At the Berlinale 2011 the film Die Ausbildung (The Education) by Dirk Lütter received the prize.
