Reps for Berlin’s Cinema for Peace — a high-profile gala taking place during the Berlin International Film Festival — have confirmed that Leonardo DiCaprio will be attending. The actor plans on using the black-tie event as a platform to promote awareness of environmental issues. From the Hollywood Reporter,

Now in its eighth year, the Cinema for Peace gala has always been a forum for celebrity proselytizing. Nicole Kidman attended the event under the auspices of a United Nations campaign protesting violence against women. Richard Gere used Cinema for Peace to raise his favorite political issue: the plight of Tibetans under Chinese rule.

DiCaprio’s environmental passions have been receiving a bit more press lately; especially in light of a new partnership with watchmaker TAG Heuer to benefit green initiatives. He recently commented on the political changes in the United States and what they mean for the environment saying, “I was in Rome when Obama won the election. He represents a whole new era. Obama gets it that green technology and the economy go hand in hand, that we can build an industry that will create new jobs and economic growth and make us less reliant on foreign oil.”

Look for the Berlin International Film Festival to kick off from Feb. 5-15.
