Every year European Film Promotion appoints a jury of five prominent industry figures (director, producer, actor, casting director, film journalist) to select Europe`s best young actors from a variety of up-and-coming acting talent from all over Europe.
The European Shooting Stars jury for 2018 is consisted of:
Award-winning Dutch director Mijke de Jong ("Layla M." – this year`s Oscar entry from The Netherlands)
Austrian casting director Nicole Schmied ("Cold Hell")
Former European Shooting Star Eduardo Noriega ("Open Your Eyes")
Norwegian arts editor, film critic and member of the Norwegian Oscar committee Mode Steinkjer
Combining their diverse expertise in the various fields of the creative filmmaking process, the jury will select the ten most talented and internationally diverse young actors and actresses from the 21 candidates who have been nominated by their respective EFP member organisations for the upcoming edition of EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS.
