David Hare joins Talent Campus mentors

Directing, effects, music among other Berlinale panels

COLOGNE, Germany -- David Hare, who wrote the screenplays to Stephen Daldry's "The Reader" and "The Hours" and won a Berlinale Golden Bear in 1985 for his directorial debut "Wetherby," will join a panel of wordsmiths at this year's Berlinale Talent Campus to discuss the art of screenwriting.

Joining Hare is U.S. indie producer Anne Carey ("The Savages," "Thumbsucker") and Brazilian writer-director Danielle Thomas, who, together with Walter Salles, penned and directed "Linha de Passe," "O Primerio Dia" and "Foreign Lands."

Visual effects experts Claudia Meglin and Mark Read, whose credits include "Tropic Thunder" and Clint Eastwood's "Changeling," will offer their support to the Editing Studio, a new Talent Campus program focused on post-production. Also mentoring the program are film editors Job ter Burg ("Black Book") and Susan Korda ("Trembling before G-d").

The 350 young filmmakers attending this year's Berlinale campus also will have a chance to learn from one of Europe's top film composers.

Max Richter ("Waltz With Bashir") will mentor the annual Volkswagen Score Competition, in which young composers create a soundtrack for a selected film excerpt. The winners will record their works with the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg and they will be premiered during the Talent Campus closing ceremony Feb. 12.
