The Berlin Film Festival has unveiled the jury that will award the fourth “Made in Germany – Perspektive Fellowship” to a young director prior to the Berlinale.
Part of the Berlinale’s Perspektive Deutsches Kino section, the fellowship supports young German filmmakers in developing a project, material and screenplay. The €15,000 fellowship is funded by watch manufacturer Glashütte Original.
Eligible to participate were all directors who had a film in the Perspektive programme in 2014.
Press screenings of the Perspektive 2015 will kick off on Jan 19 with the presentation of this fellowship to a young talent from the 2014 edition.
The new jury members, all of whom will attend the award ceremony, are director Angelina Maccarone, actress Jenny Schily and producer Jochen Laube. Film journalist Knut Elstermann will host the occasion and invite the press in the name of the Berlinale to talk with the new fellowship holder
