It's no secret that I historically don't really follow film festivals, unless of course they somehow involve Meryl. In as much as an awards contender may premiere at a festival, I'm typically only aware of the buzz surrounding such films, lacking a great understanding of the day to day goings-on of the event. You can imagine my mild surprise to learn that the Berlin International Film Festival was a ten day showcase. In addition to Meryl's master class last weekend, the schedule had to be considerably rigorous for the festival's jury, of which Streep served as president this year.
The full list of winners/awards can be seen here. Fun to see that a documentary was chosen for the Golden Bear, hopefully I'll get a chance to see it. Streep wrapped things up Sunday on the red carpet, alongside Clive Owen and other members of the film jury.
Now it's time for some news on Meryl's next project!
