7 February 2015, Berlin: Having just arrived at the Berlinale from across Europe, this year’s EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS were welcomed at a reception held on Saturday night at the TESIRO Golden Bear Lounge by Richard Shen, President of TESIRO. Here each of the ten promising young actors were presented with a stunning jewellery keepsake, honouring their individual achievements and attendance at Berlin International Film Festival (5 – 15 February).
Chinese jewellery company TESIRO, now in its seventh year of supporting European Film Promotion´s SHOOTING STARS initiative and moreover donating the prestigious SHOOTING STARS Award, will present this to each of the selected actors and celebrate their outstanding accomplishments to date, as well as their future endeavors.
