Shooting Stars 2016


at the Berlin International Film Festival
Germany (February)

Glamour on the red carpet featuring the next wave of European acting talent. One of EFP’s flagship programmes, Shooting Stars, has been introducing up and coming European actors and actresses to the press, industry and public at the Berlinale since 1998. Each year, the new talent is nominated by EFP members, and the final selection of ten is made by an international jury of industry professionals. As a Shooting Star, the actors and actresses attend a series of high-profile private and public events over the festival’s busy first weekend, culminating in the presentation of the Shooting Stars Awards at the Berlinale Palast. As a member of this select group, Shooting Stars meet with the international industry, including Casting Directors, Talent Agents and Producers, which broadens and strengthens their industry alliances and network.

Among the top-flight actors recognized with the Shooting Stars Award over the years are: Daniel Craig, Melanie Laurent, Maria Bonnevie, Rachel Weisz, Carey Mulligan, Daniel Bruhl, Nina Hoss and Maisie Williams.

This event is co-financed by the participating EFP member organisations.
