'Resident Evil' Producer Bernd Eichinger to Get Posthumous Honor at Berlin Film Fest


Bernd Eichinger


The late German producer will be honored with a screening of his 1996 drama 'A Girl Called Rosemarie' at the festival that will run February 10-20.

Oscar-nominated German movie producer Bernd Eichinger will be honored posthumously at this year's Berlin International Film Festival. The man behind acclaimed films like "Downfall" and "The Baader Meinhof Complex" passed away after suffering a heart attack on Monday, January 24 at the age of 61.

Many consider Eichinger to be Germany's most successful moviemaker, with other credits including "The Name of the Rose", the "Resident Evil" films and The "Fantastic Four" films. Berlin Festival director Dieter Kosslick has paid tribute to Eichinger, calling him a "visionary producer and passionate cineaste".

And he reveals festival organizers will honor him at the upcoming event with a screening of his 1996 drama "A Girl Called Rosemarie", one of the rare films he both produced and directed. The film features a breakout performance by actress Nina Hoss, who is a member of this year's international jury, headed by Isabella Rossellini. The annual festival runs from 10 to 20 February. Eichinger is survived by his wife Katja and daughter Nina, a well-known German TV personality.
