Domhnall Gleeson a ‘Shooting Star’

Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson has been one of 10 young actors selected to take part in Shooting Stars. This is a unique pan-European initiative which puts a spotlight on Europe’s best actors and puts emerging new acting talent at the forefront of the Berlin International Film Festival.

2011 is the 14th edition of the event and will see the actors involved in a number of activities which include several presentations to the film industry and public; a press conference; an intimate one-on-one-meeting with international casting directors; a reception and presentation at the Awards Ceremony in the Berlinale Palast.

Other actors which were given the honour in previous years were Daniel Craig, Ludivine Sagnier, Maria Bonnevie, Rachel Weisz,  Moritz Bleibtreu,  Johanna Wokalek and Nina Hoss.
