Let the Golden Bears Dance – Berlinale's 60th Anniversary
Over the years the Berlinale has grown into Europe’s biggest film market. The festival is open to all and a lot more unpretentious than, say, the Cannes Film Festival. A folk fest, the Berlinale keeps the winter chill at bay for 11 days. At the heart of it all is the Golden Bear, awarded for best film. Join us as we celebrate 60 years of the Berlinale with a series of deserving top-prize winners.
Series of 10 films screening throughout February
Age of Scandal: Films that Shook the Berlinale
With any good party comes a scandal or two, and Berlin has certainly had its share of meltdowns and melodrama. The festival was only in its second year, in 1952, when Orson Welles’s "Othello" was removed from the competition. Still, that pales next to the 1976 controversy surrounding "I sansernes vold" that led to film reels being confiscated, even arrests. Or the imbroglio around Michael Verhoeven’s anti-Vietnam War film "O.K." that caused the entire festival to collapse in 1970.
