European Shooting Stars returns in 2015 to showcase Europe’s best and brightest young acting talent during the opening weekend of the Berlin International Film Festival.

European Film Promotion (EFP) has announced the talented ten actors who will be heading to Berlin on 7th February.

Now in its 18th year, the annual talent platform has received financial support from the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme of the European Union and participating EFP member organisations.

The 2015 Shooting Stars have been revealed as follows: Joachim Fjelstrup (Denmark), Jannis Niewöhner (Germany), Emmi Parviainen (Finland), Hera Hilmar (Iceland), Moe Dunford (Ireland), Aistė Diržiūtė (Lithuania), Abbey Hoes (The Netherlands), Natalia de Molina (Spain), Sven Schelker (Switzerland) and Maisie Williams (UK).

The ten young actors and actresses will follow in the footsteps of previous winners, many of whom are now internationally acclaimed in their field. Alumni include Daniel Craig (UK – 2000), Daniel Brühl (Germany – 2003), Elio Germano (Italy – 2008), David Dencik (Denmark – 2007), Carey Mulligan (UK – 2009) and Alicia Vikander (Sweden – 2011).
