Eight former laureates of the Berlin film festival's shooting stars award will present the 2008 EFAs in Copenhagen, including Anamaria Marinca, (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days).

The Berlin film festival's Shooting Stars award goes to the best rising European talent of the year.

The award was initiated by the European Film Promotion (EFP) as part of the Berlin festival and is supported by the EU's MEDIA programme

Eight of Europe's best young actors, who have previously won Berlinale Shooting Star awards, will serve as presenters of the ceremony this year including Anamaria Marinca, (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days).

The 21st EFA awards, organised by the EFA Productions in co-operation with the German broadcaster ZDF, the European culture channel ARTE, and DR Danish Radio, will take place in Copenhagen on December 6.

Other presenters include Marianne Faithfull (Irina Palm) and Santiago Segura (Hellboy II: The Golden Army).

Marion Döring, Director of the EFA said, ' The European Film Academy and EFA Productions are aiming - through the annual European Film Awards - to bring European films to the audience. Actors play a vital role in raising the public's attention because they are the ones the audiences identify with. This is also the reason why in the European Film Awards ceremony most of the awards are presented by actors - thus serving as ambassadors of the film cultures in Europe.'
