German director-producer Peter Sehr has been tapped to head the Dialogue en perspective jury at the upcoming Berlin Film Festival.

The independent jury prize will be awarded for the fifth time to a film in the Berlinale’s Perspektive Deutsches Kino section, which showcases domestic productions.

International French channel TV5Monde and the Franco-German Youth Office sponsor the Dialogue en perspective prize, which aims to promote intercultural dialogue between young German and French people and boost interest in Teutonic film among young Gauls. The Dialogue en perspective jury will consist of seven young German and French film aficionados.

The Berlinale runs Feb. 7-17.
