The jury will select ten actors to be showcased at next year’s Berlinale from a 24-strong shortlist.

European Film Promotion (EFP) has announced the five members of the Shooting Stars jury for 2014.

The jury consists of Norwegian actor and fortmer Shooting Star Anders Baasmo Christiansen, UK film critic and editor Charles Gant, German film director Hermine Huntgeburth, Croatian casting director Oriana Kunčić and film producer Jani Thiltges from Luxembourg.

24 EFP member countries have nominated one emerging actor from their territory to be considered as a 2014 Shooting Star, and the jury will select the final list of ten actors to be showcased to the international film community and entertainment media at next year’s Berlinale (Feb 6-14).

The three-day event during the first weekend of the festival will culminate in the annual awards ceremony, where each actor will be honoured with the Shooting Star award, presented by Tesiro, on the main festival stage.

Shooting Stars is financially supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP members.
