'Snowpiercer' director Boon Joon-Ho and 'Act of Killing' helmer Joshua Oppenheimer will also take part in the Berlinale's mini film school.

Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, president of the international jury at this year's Berlin International Film Festival, will also take part in the Berlinale Talents, the six-day mini film school that runs concurrent to the Berlin festival.

Aronofsky will kick off this year's Berlinale Talents with a discussion with fellow jurors on how they shaped space with the frames of their films. Other high-profile panelists at Berlinale Talents this year include Oscar-nominated director Wim Wenders, recipient of a lifetime achievement Golden Bear at the 2015 Berlinale, Snowpiercer helmer Bong Joon Ho and Brazilian director Walter Sales (On the Road).

Other speakers include German directors Andreas Dresen and Sebastian Schipper, French filmmaker Ursula Meier and Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings).

The Berlinale Talents program invites young up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world to take part in a series of meetings, workshops and lectures. This year's Talents program runs Feb. 7-12.
