Charlotte Rampling, who is jury prexy of this year’s Berlin Competition section, will join Wim Wenders, Park Chan-wook, Christopher Doyle, Anthony Dod Mantle, Stephen Warbeck, Jim Clark and Angie Lam as guest speakers at this year’s Talent Campus.
The Berlin Film Festival’s educational platform is opening most of its events to the public for the first time. Some 520 young filmmakers from around the world are taking part in the event.
This year’s Campus, which focuses on editing, takes place Feb. 11-16 in the House of World Cultures near Potsdamer Platz.
Among events will be a panel discussion on editing with Clark (“The World Is Not Enough”), Angie Lam (“Hero”), Sabine Krayenbuehl (“Mad Hot Ballroom”) and Dirk Grau (“Rhythm Is It”); a discussion on cinematography with Dod Mantle (“Dear Wendy”) and Doyle (“Hero”); and a talk with Park (“Old Boy”) about his work as an editor and scriptwriter.
Park will also be a mentor for the film teams during the Talent Movie of the Week, produced in collaboration with Berlin company Avanti Media.
Additional Campus events include a look at the work of late Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski with panelists Wenders, Agnieszka Holland (“Washington Square”) and Andres Veiel (“Black Box BRD”), all of whom were influenced by Kieslowski’s films; and a conversation with Rampling coupled with highlights of her acting career.
A segment on music will have composer Warbeck (“Shakespeare in Love”) onstage with musicians from the Volkswagen Orchestra providing live music and presenting extracts from films featuring his compositions. Warbeck is also a mentor for the Volkswagen Score Competition, in which three up-and-coming composers will compete.
