The final weekend of the Berlinale has begun! Even in the last days, we're still seeing so many premieres, awards, and magical first-time screenings - here's yesterday's recap.

1.-2. The Competition gem "Ballad of a White Cow" very successfully premiered on Museum Island, with directors Behtash Sanaeeha and Maryam Moghaddam as well as producers Etienne de Ricaud and Gholamreza Mousavi in attendance.

3. Eliane Raheb and Miguel Jleilaty were jumping for joy: Their film "Miguel's War" won the TEDDY AWARD for Best Feature Film yesterday! Host Jules Elting and jury member Sylvia Cachin had a lot of fun as well. "International Dawn Chorus Day" by John Greyson won the TEDDY Award for Best Short Film, and the TEDDY Jury Award went to "Instructions for Survival" by Yana Ugrekhelidze (who took home the Compass Perspektive Award yesterday as well!). Huge congratulations to all!

4. At Kulturforum, "The Beta Test" by Jim Cummings and PJ McCabe premiered, with the directors demonstrating how to socially distance at a photo call.

5. Actors Viktoria Lisovskaya and Alina Korol as well as director Uldus Bakhtiozina presented "Tzarevna Scaling" in Berlinale Forum, gracefully bracing the summer heat.

6.-7. "For Lucio" premiered at beautiful Schloss Charlottenburg, with producers Filippo Terzi and Francesca Andreoli introducing the film alongside Berlinale artistic director Carlo Chatrian.

8. The Panorama documentary "Dirty Feathers" screened at Freiluftkino Kreuzberg or the first time, introduced by producers Alexis Franco and Denise Dorado as well as director Carlos-Alfonso Corral.

9. "Taste" celebrated its late-night premiere at Freiluftkino Hasenheide with a video introduction by director Lê Bảo. Since the first planned screening sadly had to be cancelled due to the weather, we're very happy we could make up for it!

"People feel like they can't be open about being a q***r actor within the industry, for fear of how it affects your career, and I wish that those fears didn't exist."

Did you catch It's A Sin at Berlinale Series last week? Don't miss actor Omari Douglas discussing the series in our interview.

About the film: A story of love, life and loss. A group of q***r young men come together in London in the early 1980s. They are all searching for themselves and a future filled with freedom and love. But the onset of the AIDS crisis confronts them with harsh realities.

We can't believe the Berlinale would ever have to say this, but: We hope you're not too hot these days! Here's a recap of yesterday's blissfully cool summer evening:

1.-2. At the premiere of "Mr Bachmann and His Class", protagonist Dieter Bachmann entertained the audience with a spontaneous sing-along session, and bridged the social distance with director Maria Speth.

3.-5. Lilith Stangenberg was all smiles at the premiere of "Bloodsuckers" (Blutsauger) at Kulturforum. The film team (actor Alexander Herbst, producer Kirill Krasovski, actor Lilith Stangenberg, actor Alexandre Koberidze and director Julian Radlmaier) posed in front of the scenic Potsdamer Platz, and Julian Radlmaier introduced the film.

6. Smiles all around at HKW as well: Ephraim Asili was very happy to introduce his film "The Inheritance", screening in Berlinale Forum.

7. Panorama section head Michael Stütz experimented with new creative photo poses at the premiere of "North By Current", much to the delight of director Angelo Madsen Minax and selection committee member Ana David.

8. At the premiere of "A Balance" (Yuko No Tenbin), director Yujiro Harumoto got into the Berlinale spirit, with actor Masahiro Umeda and producer Sunao Katabuchi on either side.

9.-10. All over town, audiences enjoyed outdoor cinema - after some COVID-19 testing, of course.

18/06/2021

Congratulations to this year's Compass-Perspektive-Award winner, "Instructions for Survival" by Yana Ugrekhelidze, awarded in the section Perspektive Deutsches Kino.

Statement of the jury: "Instructions for Survival shakes the viewer’s foundations from the get-go. First depicting physical, then structural violence against LGBTQI people, it increases our awareness of the kind of degrading situation the protagonists find themselves in. Alexander and Mari live in Tiflis, Georgia, in secrecy and constant uncertainty: Since Alexander’s trans identity isn’t recognised by law, and he’s been rejected by his family, the couple has decided to emigrate. To raise the money they need, Mari agrees to a surrogate pregnancy. Yana Ugrekhelidze’s documentary film reveals its protagonists’ secret little by little. It approaches their situation without intruding, and shares their closeness during the most intimate moments, without exploiting them. This careful observation of the love between the protagonists who have to give up their homeland to live out their identities illustrates some of Europe’s dramatic deficiencies. We were touched by the story of their flight."

About the film: Alexander’s transgender identity means he is forced to live in hiding in his home country. His wife Mari’s surrogacy is supposed to help them escape to Western Europe but they soon develop an emotional bond with the unborn child.⠀

The award will be presented by jurors Claudia Lehmann, Lili Hering and Simon Dat Vu at the Freiluftkino Hasenheide tonight, June 18 at 9.30pm. Yana Ugrekhelidze will receive a trophy in form of a compass, intended to symbolically provide orientation.

Check out our interview with the filmmaker, Yana Ugrekhelidze, on our YouTube channel: bit.ly/MeetsYanaUgrekhelidze

Besides the presentation of the Compass-Perspektive-Award, the jury also awarded a special mention to "Wood and Water" by Jonas Bak.

Statement of the jury: "In Wood and Water, a retired woman from the Black Forest travels to Hong Kong in search of her lost son. Through magical images, a precisely observed meditation on aging is created, as well as an atmospheric and decelerating cinema experience."

About the film: A mother, newly retired and living alone, travels to a Hong Kong marked by protests to see her son again after many years. She is trying to leave behind the void that opened up after she stopped working, as well as her memories of a once perfect family life.

Normality is slowly returning to Berlin as the city further eases COVID-19 restrictions from tomorrow onwards.
However, the Berlinale Summer Special is still a pilot project with the Berlin Senate.

For this reason, the festival will be carried out to the end with the established hygiene framework concept, regardless of city regulations.

We therefore ask all visitors to continue to adhere to our measures so that we can close out this wonderful event in the safest way possible. Information on the applicable hygiene measures can be found via the link in bio as well as on our website: www.berlinale.de/en/service/hygiene-policy.html

And one more thing: As summer returns, unfortunately mosquitoes return as well, so please remember to bring a repellant spray or citrus oil. We also recommend dressing accordingly, for example in longer clothes or garments with stripes - by the way: did you know that Zebras get stung or bitten a lot less due to their stripes?

As we're entering the last stretch of the festival, we've got one more batch of film highlights for you! This time: First feature films - four strong debuts from four talented directors.

There are even still some last tickets for left for "Taste" on June 18 and "The Scary of Sixty-First" on June 20! Find them via bit.ly/SummerSpecialProgramme.

In the GWFF Best First Feature award winner "The Scary of Sixty-First", two roommates discover the secrets of their new apartment which used to belong to pa******le billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. In "Taste", winner of the Encounters Special Jury award, a newly unemployed Nigerian footballer moves in with four middle-aged women in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City and they create an intimate utopia for themselves.

Our Silver Bear for Best Director winning film "Natural Light" takes place during World War II, where Hungarian soldiers must decide whether to adapt or do the right thing. And the Forum gem "Ste Anne" is a portrait of a Métis nation community, shot on 16mm with non-professional actors.

Our Story

The Berlinale is a unique place of artistic exploration and entertainment. It is one of the largest public film festivals in the world, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe each year. For the film industry and the media, the eleven days in February are also one of the most important events in the annual calendar and an indispensable trading forum.

The Berlin International Film Festival enjoys an eventful history. The festival was created for the Berlin public in 1951, at the beginning of the Cold War, as a “showcase of the free world”. Shaped by the turbulent post-war period and the unique situation of a divided city, the Berlinale has developed into a place of intercultural exchange and a platform for the critical cinematic exploration of social issues. To this day it is considered the most political of all the major film festivals.

The Berlinale brings the big stars of international cinema to Berlin and discovers new talents. It accompanies filmmakers of all disciplines on their paths into the spotlight and supports careers, projects, dreams and visions.

Thanks to its numerous industry initiatives, the Berlinale is a significant driver of innovation and an important economic factor internationally as well as for companies in Germany and Berlin. NEXT FESTIVAL February 11 – 21, 2021
