Germany will fete de Hadeln

Exec credited with expanding fest, East-West exchange

BERLIN — Moritz de Hadeln, executive director of the Berlin Intl. Film Festival, will receive the Bundesverdienstkreuz, the German Medal of Honor.

De Hadeln will receive the order, equivalent to the U.K.’s OBE, for his services in expanding the festival and his contributions to the cultural exchange between Eastern and Western Europe. His achievements in re-establishing the fest and its film market as lures to the international community and in maintaining the Berlinale’s standing on the festival circuit were also applauded in a statement issued.

De Hadeln, who has run the festival since 1979, will receive the award in a ceremony in Berlin Sept. 29. He will serve as fest director for the last time in 2001; local film financier Dieter Kosslick has been named de Hadeln’s successor and will run the fest beginning in 2002.
