Special TEDDY AWARD winner 2024-Lothar Lambert


This year’s Special TEDDY AWARD for outstanding achievement and long-term service to queer cinema goes to the Berlin-based filmmaker Lothar Lambert. Lothar Lambert, that is also LoLa: from the 1970s to today, that means underground, in its most original meaning. Hardly any filmmaker has come closer to people who do not fit into any social mold. With his characters borrowed from life, he created a cinematic cornucopia of everyday queer life in Berlin and took it to the extreme.
