SHOOTING STARS as presenters for EFA Ceremony

SHOOTING STARS as presenters for European Film Awards Ceremony

Eight of Europe's best actors, who were named as SHOOTING STARS at the Berlinale in previous years, will serve as presenters at the 21st European Film Awards (EFA) ceremony in Copenhagen on the 6th of December. Introduced not long ago in Berlin as newcomers to the world's film scene, they are now sought-after names internationally, ready to be ambassadors for European cinema at the EFA ceremony this year. As of 1998, the SHOOTING STARS event has been supported by the EU's MEDIA Programme.

European Film Promotion (EFP), the promotional network for European cinema and initiator of SHOOTING STARS, is pleased to welcome to Copenhagen Stefano Accorsi from Italy, Stine Fischer Christensen from Denmark, Anna Geislerová from the Czech Republic, Hannah Herzsprung from Germany, Thure Lindhardt from Denmark, Anamaria Marinca from Romania, Labina Mitevska from Macedonia (member of the SHOOTING STARS' jury 2009) and Mark O'Halloran from Ireland. For their lead roles in Flame and Citron Thure Lindhardt and Mads Mikkelsen are nominated as 'Best Actor' at the European Film Awards in 2008.

Marion Döring, Director of the European Film Academy says: "Like European Film Promotion with the SHOOTING STARS programme, the European Film Academy and EFA Productions are aiming - through the annual European Film Awards - to bring European films to the audience. Actors play a vital role in raising the public's attention because they are the ones the audiences identify with. This is also the reason why in the European Film Awards ceremony most of the awards are presented by actors - thus serving as ambassadors of the film cultures in Europe."
