Berlinale: Wieland Speck Takes on New Responsibilities and Hands Over His Position as Head of Panorama after 25 Years

TEDDY Diversity Talks 2017

About a month ago another Berlinale finished after 10 days of premieres, discussions and networking. Besides moving our Queer Academy/Programmers Meeting to the Martin-Gropius-Bau, we also initiated the TEDDY Diversity Talks. After last year’s Academy Summit, we decided to continue those talks but in a different, more intimate format where filmmakers could go into depth discussing certain topics circling Queer Cinema.

We are very happy to share all four talks with you today. Please make sure to view the talks, especially if you did not get a chance to attend in person a few weeks ago. It would be great if you could share the links also within your community,our goal is to reach as many interested people as possible, to keep the discussions flowing. We will be back with more Diversity Talks and are looking forward to welcome you back in Berlin.
