New Generation: Redpath upped


Maryanne Redpath has been named the director of the Berlin International Film Festival's children's and teen film sidebar Generation.

Formerly the Generation co-director and Berlin's scout for films from Australia and New Zealand, Redpath replaces Generation director Thomas Hailer, who has been named the Berlin festival's program manager.

Sliding into Redpath's co-director position is Florian Weghorn, who will serve as her second in command.

As festival program manager, Hailer will work with festival head Dieter Kosslick, international relations boss Karin Hoffinger and Berlin competition program coordinator Johanna Muth on the festival's main lineup and related events.
