The Berlin International Film Festival kicks off next Thursday, and Meryl Streep will headline this year’s Jury. It’s the first time she has taken over a jury job at a festival, but by far not the first time she has attended the Berlinale. It’ll be interesting to see if there are many public appearances (a masterclass has already been announced) or if Meryl will be hiding in the theaters to watch all films in competition. The good thing however, since I live in Germany, is that we can get all the coverage on what’s happening, so prepare yourself for a busy week. As a look back, the first Streep film to premiere at the Berlinale was “The Deer Hunter” in 1979, causing a stir after it was removed from the festival after withdrawal of several countries from the festival in protest of its inclusion. Both “Out of Africa” and “Marvin’s Room” screened in the 1980s and 1990s as well. Her first appearance came in 1999 with the premiere of “One True Thing” and an honorary Berlinale Kamera (an award for people that the Berlinale feels connected to through their artistry). In 2003, Meryl, Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman won the Best Actress award for “The Hours”, although Meryl wasn’t present. She returned three years later with the cast of “A Prairie Home Companion” and again in 2012 for the premiere of “The Iron Lady” and for receiving the Honorary Golden Bear, with which the Berlinale pays tribute to important figures in the world of film. Have a look at the photo gallery below for all appearances and look forward to more additions this next week.

According to Variety, Clive Owen, Italian actress Alba Rohrwacher and Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska have joined Meryl Streep on the international jury of the Berlin Film Festival. Also on the jury are French photographer Brigitte Lacombe, “Sight & Sound” editor Nick James and German actor Lars Eidinger. As previously announced, Streep is the president of the jury. The festival also announced it would present its Berlinale Camera award to Tim Robbins for his achievements as an actor, director, writer and producer; U.S. producer, movie theater owner and distributor Ben Barenholtz; and German cinema operator Marlies Kirchner. The award is given to film personalities or institutions to which the festival feels particularly indebted and wishes to express its thanks. The festival opens next Thursday.

Six promotional featurettes for Meryl’s films, including Postcards from the Edge, The River Wild, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Prime, Doubt and Suffragette have been added to the video archive (the Suffragette video has been added before but went without mention). The former five are not full featurettes but rather bits from an entertainment program, still a great find and some wonderful on-set footage and old interviews. Click any of the previews below.
