It’s still not clear whether the full A-list of nominated actors – which include Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia), Tilda Swinton (We Have to Talk About Kevin) and Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) - will make the trip to Berlin. But there will be an abundance of behind-the-camera talent attending, including EFA president Wim Wenders, nominated for his 3-D dance documentary Pina, British director Stephen Frears, who will be receiving a lifetime achievement honor, Chicken With Plums helmer Marjane Satrapi and Brit cinematographer Peter Suschitzky (A Dangerous Method).
German comedienne Anke Engelke will host the event in front of 1,000 guests at Berlin’s Tempodrom arena with musical entertainment provided by Balkan beats DJ Shantel. For the afterparty at Berlin’s Hotel Concorde, German director Fatih Akin will man the decks together with his Soul Kitchen star Adam Bousdoukos.
