Tonight the EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS of 2021 were welcomed on the outdoor cinema stage especially built for the Berlinale Museum Island. Patron Maren Eggert and leading actress of the Silver Bear award-winning film, I'm your Man by Maria Schrader, presented the European Shooting Stars Award to the lucky winners.

In February, EFP had introduced the ten emerging European actresses and actors to the film industry and public and international press as part of a three-day online programme. With the physical award ceremony taking place during the Berlinale Summer Specials in the presence of Festival Directors Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian as well as Monika Grütters, German Minister of the State for Culture and the Media, reuniting eight of the ten talents, EFP's Shooting Stars project is coming to a glamorous end. It is the longest-standing and most prestigious initiative promoting European acting talent.

EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS is made possible thanks to the support of Creative Europe – the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, the German Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and Spotlight, as well as the participating national film promotion institutes from the Shooting Stars‘ countries, EFP’s member organisations – with a special thanks to German Films: Finnish Film Foundation, German Films, Lithuanian Film Centre, Instituto do Cinema e do Audiovisual I.P. / ICA (Portugal), National Film Institute Hungary, North Macedonia Film Agency, Screen Ireland, SEE NL (The Netherlands), Swedish Film Institute and UniFrance. Main media partner is Variety, further media partners are Screen International, Cineuropa, Blickpunkt:Film, HeyUGuys, Fade to Her and Festival Scope.

Interviews with this year’s EFP SHOOTING STARS are published on the website of the programme’s media partners: Cineuropa and HeyUGuys. The kick-off show can be watched again here.
