Berlinale 2011. Generation Lineup

David Hudson

"A total of 59 films from 32 countries have been selected for the competition of Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus," the Berlinale's announced today. "Five personalities have been invited to be on the jury: Hong Kong Chinese producer and director Mabel Cheung produced Shui Yuet Sun Tau, last year's Crystal Bear winner. New Zealand director Taika Waititi won the Grand Prix of the Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk for Boy in 2010. Filmmaker Felix Gönnert from Germany is known at Generation for his brilliantly animated, prize-winning short films. In 2010, Australian director and producer of indigenous cinema Rachel Perkins presented Bran Nue Dae at Generation 14plus. With Jonathan Davis, the jury also includes an expert on European film policy." Plus: "Eleven children from Berlin between the ages of eleven and 14 as well as seven young adults have been invited to be on the Children's and Youth Juries. They will award Crystal Bears for the Best Short and Best Feature in the Generation Kplus and 14plus competitions."

So here's the program. As with yesterday's entry on the Perspektive Deutsches Kino lineup, only not quite as extensively, some links and some notes will follow in the coming hours and days.
