Berlin fest fetes rising stars

Kosslick, Hopper greet new talents

European Film Promotion’s annual “Shooting Stars” party Feb. 9 again ranked as one of the Berlin Intl. Film Festival’s key soirees this year, drawing some 1,000 partygoers to the Sony Center’s Palmensaal to celebrate Europe’s brightest new acting talents.

Berlin fest director Dieter Kosslick was on hand to help officiate, with established screen stars such as Dennis Hopper popping by to greet the new Euro talents. EFP reps the film promotion bodies of more than 20 Euro nations, and the 19 thesps presented in Berlin hailed from virtually every language group, from Icelandic to Irish.

A more intimate bash in the Berlinale Dining Club followed the next evening, providing a prime networking opportunity for the thesps to break bread with top international industryites, such as Myriad Films honcho Marianne Pilowsky, Italia Cinema’s Georgio Gossetti, Bavaria Media pros Thorsten Ritter and Sebastian Kiesmuller, Hollywood producer Evzen Kolar, Teutonic helmer Eckhart Schmidt and Italian helmer Gabriele Salvatores, whose “I’m Not Scared” bowed in the Berlin competition.
