COLOGNE, Germany -- Danish director Susanne Bier, German actress Diane Kruger and French star Sandrine Bonnaire are among the names to sign up for jury duty at the 58th Berlin International Film Festival.
The jury, headed by famed political filmmaker Costa-Gavras ("Z," Missing) also includes Oscar-winning film and sound editor Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Taiwanese actress Shu-Qi (The Transporter), Russian film producer and CTC president Alexander Rodniansky (East-West) and award-winning German production designer Uli Hanisch ("Perfume -- The Story of a Murderer").
The four-man, four-woman jury will select the winners of Berlin's Gold and Silver Bears from among this year's Berlinale competition films.
Actresses Kruger, Bonnaire and Shu-Qi are no strangers to the Berlinale. Kruger, famous for her break-through role alongside Nicolas Cage in the National Treasure films, was in Berlin last year for the In Competition premiere of Bille August's Goodbye Bafana. Shu-Qi last appeared in Berlin in Stanley Kwan's in-competition entry The Island Tales in 2000 and Bonnaire starred in Patrice Leconte's Intimate Strangers, a Berlinale competition film in 2004.
