Variety is reporting that Meryl will serve as the jury president at the Berlin International Film Festival in February. This marks the first time Streep has been on a film festival panel. Among her duties, she will involved in deciding, with others on the jury, which awards will be allocated to which films.
It's fun to see Meryl getting her hands a bit dirty in other aspects of film over the past few years. She's conducted her first master class, funded a women's screenwriting lab and now this. Certainly keeping busy. I look forward to her involvement in this latest endeavor.
The Berlin International Film Festival runs from February 11-21, 2016.
