About the Berlin Film Festival trophies
The winner of the Berlin Film Festival receives a trophy of a golden bear. This bear is given to the best movie. There are also silver bears presented for best acting, writing and production. The Berlin film festival has seven sections. The Competition section is where artists can win these trophies. Retrospective is a section that plays films from past Berlin film festivals. Berlinale Shorts are both domestic and international short films. Generation is for films aimed at children, and includes a children’s jury. Forum is meant for experimental films and documentaries. Panorama films are independent movies with a focus on creating discussion of controversial or startling movements and ideas, often focusing on LGBTQ or other issues. Finally, there is the Perspektive Deutsches Kino. These films are German and meant to bring attention to trends in German movies at the moment. The bear is the animal of Berlin, which is why it is given as the trophy for the Berlin film festival. Movies from all around the world have won this award. There is also a Honorary Golden Bear given for lifetime achievement. Recipients of this award have included Meryl Streep, James Stewart, Sophia Loren and Elia Kazan, among many others.
