Isabella Rossellini tapped to lead Berlin film festival jury

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Berlin International Film Festival announced this morning that Isabella Rossellini will lead the festival jury for the 61st annual event, which will be held Feb. 10-20, 2011.

“It’s fantastic that Isabella Rossellini will be the President of the Berlinale Jury in 2011,” said festival director Dieter Kosslick. “She is a multifaceted, creative film artist with extensive experience in European, American and international cinema.”

The daughter of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini, the actress-producer-director has been immersed in the industry since the mid-1970s. She has worked with Norman Mailer, Robert Zemeckis, John Schlesinger, Peter Weir, Abel Ferrara and David Lynch, most notably in “Blue Velvet.” She has been a regular guest at the Berlin International Film Festival, bringing the short film “My Dad is 100 Years Old” in 2005 and “Brand Upon the Brain!” in 2007.
