Well, no one can accuse the people at the Berlin Film Festival for being conservative: according to The Guardian, this year's jury "will include a veteran Bollywood producer, a renowned cinematographer and an artist with a fixation on the muscle that controls testicular contractions." Doesn't that just roll right off the tongue?

The men described above are, in turn, Yash Chopra, Janusz Kaminski, who has won two Oscars for his work with Steven Spielberg, and the talented, unpredicatable Matthew Barney (you know, the guy with with the whale movie). Joining that trio are five other panelists who continue the trend towards diversity: South Korean actor Lee Yeong-ae, Charlotte Rampling (who will serve as the Jury's chair), actor Armin Mueller-Stahl, Fred Roos (whose productions range from Apocalypse Now to Lost in Translation), and Dutch director Marleen Gorris. This is possibly the greatest jury of all time - what a great mix of ages, backgrounds, specialities, and interests. I can't wait to see what this crew comes up with when the time comes to hand out the awards on February 18.
