‘Rwanda’ nabs a peace prize

Berlin Gala included pic fete, charity auction, dancing

BERLIN — A bevy of German celebs pranced down the catwalk of Berlin’s neoclassic Konzerthaus for UNICEF’s fourth annual Cinema for Peace gala, which celebrated “Hotel Rwanda” with the Cinema for Peace Award.

The sumptuous soiree kicked off with a chorus of white-robed damsels singing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” followed by speeches by Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, before segueing into a charity auction and dancing under crystal chandeliers.

“There is perhaps no other city that symbolizes change as much as Berlin,” said Sarandon, “therefore no better place for the film community to come together to stand against foolishness and hatred.”

Boris Becker, Roland Emmerich and John Malkovich were among those spotted sipping Riesling and mingling with the largely local crowd, which included Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit and Berlin Film Festival chief Dieter Kosslick.
