Aronofsky to head Berlin fest jury

Darren Aronofsky has been chosen to lead the jury at next year's Berlin International Film Festival.

Organisers of the festival announced American director Aronofsky as jury president, but didn't say who else will be in the group choosing the winner of its top Golden Bear award. The event - the first of the year's major European film festivals - runs from February 5-15, 2015.

The 45-year-old director of movies including Noah, Black Swan and The Wrestler said in a statement issued by the festival that he is "looking forward to watching the latest from the greatest in one of the great cities on the planet".

The jury at the 2014 Berlin festival was headed by Brokeback Mountain producer James Schamus.
