For the first time the online magazine queer.de is going to be the media partner of the TEDDY AWARD. The diverse jury of five people representing our community decides which one of the nominated films will receive the TEDDY Readers’ Award 2019. The jury members are Amanda Halbrock, Oliver Maus, Katayun Pirdawari, Gerlinde Kenkel and Fabian Schäfer. At 21, Amanda Halbrock from Berlin is the youngest member of the jury. The non-binary queer person, who has recently been on the road as a Dragking, is looking forward to the task and wishes to see the diversity of the community reflected on the screen. Oliver Maus will be visiting us from Vienna. The 25-year-old media science student wants to add an analytic insight of the queer cinema to the jury. Katayun Pirdawari has been on several juries for the TEDDY Readers’ Award in recent years. For the 56-year-old lesbian from Berlin, the Berlinale is a festival of cultures and a trip around the world. Gerlinde Kenkel, also from the German capital. The 63-year-old lesbian trans woman is especially looking forward to the exchange with other film fans without bending herself. She hopes for films with surprising content. Fabian Schäfer is a freelance journalist and has been studying in Sofia since the winter semester. The 24-year-old prefers to focus on everything that goes beyond the heteronormative framework and wants to present queer people authentically and in all their diversity in the media.
