PRESS CONFERENCE INVITATION
Jakub Gierszałłł, Poland
Jakub caught everyone’s attention with his
remarkable performance in Jan Komasa’s
techno-thriller SUICIDE ROOM which had its
premiere at Berlinale 2011. The film will hit
European cinemas this spring. Jakub has
recently been working on Jacek Borcuch’s
latest feature LASTING MOMENTS (working
title) and will soon graduate from the National
Theatre Academy of his native Cracow.
Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Irland
Antonia already has an impressive number of
films under her belt. Her performance in Jane
Campion’s BRIGHT STAR lead to international
attention. More recently a lead role in Rebecca
Daly’s thriller THE OTHER SIDE OF SLEEP earned
her a Best Actress nomination at this year’s
Irish Film and Television Awards. She can also
be seen this spring in Rodrigo Garcia’s, Golden
Globe nominated, ALBERT NOBBS alongside
Glenn Close.
Anna Maria Mühe, Germany
After her celebrated appearances in Achim von

CHILD by Christian Schwochow, Anna Maria
took a role in Julie Delpy’s German-French
production THE COUNTESS. She will soon be
seen on big screen in Christian Schwochow’s
CRACKS IN THE SHELL and has recently finished
working on FLY AWAY by Bernd Böhlich opposite
Robert Stadlober. Truly one to watch.
Adèle Haenel, France
Adèle already has a remarkable credit list with
her three last films selected for Cannes 2011,
one of which includes HEAT WAVE by JeanJacques Jauffret. She is currently appearing in
HOUSE OF TOLERANCE by Bertrand Bonello, a
performance that won her a share in the Best
Upcoming Actress Award at the Prix Lumière

Isabella made her film acting debut in Emanuele
Crialese’s GOLDEN DOOR in 2006 and was
seen at the Venice Film Festival 2010 in Giorgia
Cecere’s THE FIRST ASSIGNMENT. Isabella
has since worked on a number of projects
showcasing her outstanding talent. Her role in
Daniele Luchetti’s OUR LIFE, released across
Europe in 2011, brought her a Best Actress
nomination at the Italian David de Donatello
awards 2011.
Bill Skarsgård, Sweden
Bill is already one of Sweden’s most recognized
stars. European audiences saw him last in
Andreas Öhman’s Oscar-shortlisted SIMPLE
SIMON. He has subsequently had a lead role in
Lisa Ohlin’s critically acclaimed SIMON AND THE
OAKS. This year’s 2012 Berlinale’s Generation

UP THIS BLOOD, screening in the Berlinale
Panorama Special and Anca Damian’s
A VERY UNSETTLED SUMMER.
Riz Ahmed, United Kingdom
Riz already has an exciting filmography making him
one of the UK’s hottest young actors. A leading role
in critically acclaimed THE ROAD TO GUANTANAMO
brought him to everyone’s attention, and starring
in Chris Morris’ FOUR LIONS got him two Best Actor

Freida Pinto in Michael Winterbottom’s TRISHNA
and Jean-Jacques Annaud’s BLACK GOLD, both
released early 2012.
