Sad but true: Today is the last day of Berlinale and the last day for you to have the opportunity to watch the queer programme. If you would like to do so, I would love to recommend you the “Teddyrolle” in Kino International. At 4pm all the queer short movies of Berlinale will be screened.
Furthermore, I am not a fan of big goodbyes, so i will keep it short and painless: Have a good one, I hope you all enjoyed the time and we will see us again next year. Cheers! Continue reading Day 11: It’s all over now TEDDY Blue
It is the second last day of the Berlinale and we went through an emotional and eventful night! The TEDDY trophy got awarded and we laughed, danced and drank. We celebrated 30 years of TEDDY, saw some great performances, Wieland Speck was giving an Laudatio and Christine Vachon was there as well.
Happy and tired we went to bed this morning just to get up only a few hours later to throw ourselves into the hustle of the festival. Two films which won the TEDDY AWARD yesterday will be shown at the Berlinale today: Continue reading Day 10: 2 times Kater and one time Kiki

Berlinale has been running for one week now and I have the feeling it just started two days ago. Time is running super fast and we reached the seventh day of the Festival. And we really need a motto…how about…CHINA!
China’s law does not criminalize homosexuality but of course it’s not the favourite country you want to live in when you are a queer person. “Chinese censors consistently hone in on LGBT content in media and film” writes Xiaogang Wei, who is part of the TEDDY Jury, in a statement. So we are especially happy about having two chinese films with queer content at the Berlinale this year!
We’ve got a documentary named “Inside the Chinese Closet” which is following two gay people in their everyday life in China. Continue reading Day 7: China, Baby
Ok guys… Halftime! Please wait a second, I have to sit down, rest a little, drink a cup of coffee, stretch myself, read the newspaper, call my friends to make sure they are still alive, and… Well, alright… Let’s move on! Continue reading Day 6: Halftime!
