BERLIN (AP) - The jury at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival will be chaired by “Brokeback Mountain” producer James Schamus and also features Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz.

Organizers of the Feb. 6-16 event, the first of the year’s major European film festivals, on Tuesday announced the eight-member lineup of the jury that will choose the winner of its top Golden Bear award.

Schamus and Waltz - who won best supporting actor Oscars for his roles in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” - will be joined by American actress-filmmaker Greta Gerwig and Michel Gondry, the French director of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

Also on the jury are James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli; Iranian-born filmmaker Mitra Farahani; Hong Kong actor Tony Leung; and Danish actress Trine Dyrholm.
