Seven young film fans from Germany and France award the independent jury prize “Dialogue en perspective”

The jury members have been selected: Seven young film fans from Germany and France will award the independent jury prize “Dialogue en perspective” to a film in the category Perspektive Deutsches Kino at this year’s 57th Berlinale. The prize was initiated in 2004 by the French TV Channel TV5MONDE and the Berlinale, and will be awarded in collaboration with the Deutsch-Französisches Jugendwerk (DFJW).

This year, the initiators of “Dialogue en perspective” are once again looking forward to a large number of entries. The selection criteria include, amongst others, a written critique of Tom Tykwer’s European co-production Das Parfum (Perfume), in conjunction with a short evaluation of the significance of German film productions in an international comparison.

In view of the large number of excellent entries, the selecting committee, comprised of representatives of TV5MONDE, the DFJW and the Perspektive Deutsches Kino section, were faced with a difficult task while selecting the three German and four French members of the jury. The role of the young film fans is to make a contribution to intercultural dialogue and to view the new German cinema from a critical, youthful, German-French standpoint.

The following members were selected for this year’s jury:

  • Anja Göbel, 26, Lüneburg, Germany
  • Michael Hack, 26, Frankfurt/Main, Germany
  • Anton Ludwig, 18, Berlin, Germany
  • Stéphane Demoustier, 29 J, Paris, France
  • Aurore Giraudon, 22, Nantes, France
  • Thomas Hochmann, 25, Lyon, France
  • Elisabeth Scherrer, 23, Saint-Cloud, France

This year’s chairperson of the jury is Mathilde Bonnefoy. In 1999, she won the German film award “Deutscher Filmpreis” as master cutter for the film Lola rennt (Run, Lola, Run) directed by Tom Tykwer.
