Jury Members Announced for Berlin’s International Movie Festival

BERLIN – The organizers of Berlin’s international film festival announced on Tuesday the names of its jury members who would be tasked with choosing which movies receive the prestigious golden and silver bear awards next month.

The jury for the 69th edition of the film awards would be formed by French actress Juliette Binoche, who would act as its president, United States film critic Justin Chang, German actress Sandra Hüller, Chilean director Sebastian Lelio, US author Rajendra Roy and British producer and actress Trudie Styler, the festival’s organizers said in a statement.

“Proud to introduce the multitalented members of our International Jury for Berlinale 2019,” the organizers said in a tweet.

Some 17 movies would be competing for the bears, with a Golden Bear for best film, the highest accolade, and seven Silver Bears for other achievements, including best director, best actress and best actor.

On Tuesday the Berlinale’s director Dieter Kosslick unveiled the full program for the festival, which will kick off on Feb. 7 with a screening of the first movie in competition, “The Kindness of Strangers” by Danish director Lone Scherling.

The 2019 awards would be the last ones held under the direction of Kosslick, who will leave his role after 18 years fronting the Berlinale.

Among the hopefuls competing for the bears would be festival regulars French director François Ozon, with “Grâce à Dieu” (By the Grace of God), Chinese director Zhang Yimou, with “Yi miao zhong” (One second), German director Fatih Akin, with “Der Goldene Handschuh” (The Golden Glove), and Spanish director Isabel Coixet, with “Elisa y Marcela” (Elisa & Marcela).

British actress Charlotte Rampling will be awarded the Honorary Golden Bear for her lifetime achievement.

She will take to the red carpet along with Binoche and French actress Catherine Deneuve, who stars in Andre Techine’s “L’adieu à la nuit” (Farewell to the Night), one of the movies in competition.

The festival was set to host world premieres for 20 of the 23 selected movies to be shown.

The winners would be announced on Feb. 16 at the Berlinale Palast.
