The 2010 Berlinale Generation program, for films targeted to younger audiences, will include five jurors: 21 year old Iranian filmmaker Hana Makhmalbaf, who won a Crystal Bear at the 2008 Berlinale for her film "Buda Az Sharm Foru Rikht"; last year's Generation Kplus and Children's Jury winner, for "C'est pas moi, je le jure!," Philippe Falardeau; Australian children's film producer Kylie Du Fresne (2005 Cyrstal Bear for Best Short Film winner "The Djarn Djarns"); director of German Children's Media Festival Goldener Spatz, Margret Albers; and screenwriter/producer Rowan O'Neill ("The Race"). The jury will be responsible for dispersing the 10,000 Euros in prizes from the Deutsche Kinderhilfswerk.
