Festgoers grab das booty bags

Gfits included cosmetics, DVDs, marzipan pralines

While Cannes and Sundance lead in the freebie stakes, Berlinale pickings aren’t to be sniffed at.

For starters, there are those exclusive stripy scarves from Hugo Boss.

Cinema For Peace-goers got face cream from Christian Dior, DVDs of “Bob Geldof in Africa” and Richard Curtis’ “The Girl in the Cafe,” marzipan pralines from Lambertz, Germany’s oldest such manufacturer — the company goes back to 1688.

ProSieben brunchers got his or hers cosmetics from Shiseido and a $35 voucher toward unspecified beauty treatments — that should be enough to get something buffed.

At the Movie Meets Media bash, partygoers had the chance to win Sony mobile phones and digital cameras.

While there were not enough to go around, BMW did donate at least one tony high-tech mountain bike, worth $3,000, to German Films to raffle at its cocktail.

Lucky winner Ephraim Gilad, prexy of Israel’s Nachshon Films, will soon be the fastest man on the Mount of Olives. Downhill, anyway.
