Berlin Festival Director Touts the ‘Great Win’ of Getting Meryl Streep

4 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The causes of migration and the global refugee crisis will be among the major themes at this year’s Berlinale, according to festival director Dieter Kosslick. And with the fest celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Teddy Award for movies with Lgbt themes, the impact of queer cinema also will be in the spotlight. Plus, there’s Meryl Streep.

The refugee crisis is a major theme at this year’s Berlinale. Why?

We were founded in a time in which the biggest movement of refugees was taking place — in 1951. It’s always been part of the program. We will also have films that try to show and better understand the reasons behind migration, war and refugees, not just the consequences.

Meryl Streep is jury president this year — the first time she’s served on a film festival jury.

It’s a great win for us to have Meryl Streep, not »
