at the Berlin International Film Festival, Germany (February)
EFP annually presents ten up-and-coming European actors and actresses from ten different European countries to the international press, public and industry at the Berlin International Film Festival. The actors and actresses are nominated by EFP members, and a final selection of participants is made by an international jury of industry professionals. These ten SHOOTING STARS are then introduced at the Berlinale through a series of high profile events, including the SHOOTING STARS Awards at the Berlinale Palast. The programme presents the opportunity for actors from Europe to connect and network with the international industry (Casting Directors, Talent Agents and Producers) with the aim of broadening and strengthening industry alliances.
Among the actors recognized with the SHOOTING STARS AWARD over the years are such top-flight actors as Daniel Craig, Mélanie Laurent, Maria Bonnevie, Rachel Weisz, Carey Mulligan, Daniel Brühl and Nina Hoss.
This event is co-financed by the participating EFP member organisations.
