Roland Emmerich to be Berlinale jury president
Rita just pointed out to me that Roland Emmerich will be president of the jury of the Berlin International Film Festival "Berlinale" in February next year.
Here's a snippet from the official press release:
German director Roland Emmerich will be president of the International Jury of the Berlinale 2005. Emmerich’s international career began with the film Das Arche Noah Prinzip (The Noah’s Ark Principle) which screened at the Berlinale in 1984 and attracted worldwide attention. Hollywood discovered this great talent, who then went on to make Independence Day , Godzilla and The Patriot , all Oscar-crowned works. In 2004, with The Day After Tomorrow , Emmerich contributed to the ongoing debate on the climate catastrophe.
Thanks Rita for the news. :)
