shooting stars 2013shooting stars 2013European Film Promotion (EFP) has announced the 10 exceptional young European actors selected as the 2013 SHOOTING STARS to be showcased February 9 – 11 at the 63rd Berlinale. A jury of international industry professionals chose the talent for their outstanding work in feature films and their potential ability to expand their careers on the world’s acting stage. EFP member organisations originally submitted 27 candidates for final selection. EFP’s annual talent platform SHOOTING STARS – Europe’s Best Young Actors – is financially supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, and the participating EFP members. Furthermore the project is supported by its cooperation partners. Jury’s comment: “We are unanimously impressed by this new generation of European actors and the level of nominees. It is a perfect mix between astonishing newcomers and talents we had already seen before, but who have taken their careers to a new level this year. The selection process was not easy and we had tough choices to make. However, we are sure of one thing: our final choice will cast the spotlight on true artists who deserve this exposure. We are very curious to see how their careers develop in the future.” The SHOOTING STARS 2013 will attend a three-day programme of events during the Berlinale that includes one-on-one interviews with international Casting Directors, various presentations to the world’s film industry, a press conference, photoshoots and a workshop. The programme culminates in a glitzy awards ceremony where each of the talent will be honoured by the Berlinale with the SHOOTING STARS Award – presented by TESIRO – on the main festival stage. Following in the footsteps of former SHOOTING STARS including Alicia Vikander, Carey Mulligan, Mélanie Laurent, Zrinka Cvitešić, Domhnall Gleeson, Elena Anaya and Moritz Bleibtreu the annual event, now in its 16th year, aims to support and champion young European actors and provides them with professional contacts to help take them to the next big step in their international careers.  ]]>
