Actor Helmut Berger passed away on 18.05.2023. At the 21st TEDDY AWARD (2007 ) Helmut Berger received the SPECIAL TEDDY AWARD for his artistic lifetime achievement. Here is an excerpt from the award ceremony.
The 37th TEDDY Award was a success. Thanks to everyone who was there and made this evening so beautiful. We are happy that this year again we could set a sign and celebrated queer life and queer creativity and solidarity. With the 37th TEDDY AWARD, thanks to you, we were able to make our contribution and share a rainbow of queer joy, visibility and community with you.
Today the 73rd Berlinale comes to an end. We had many great films and interviews this year. Not to forget the award ceremony of the GOLDEN BEARS and the TEDDY AWARDS. We´re extremly hapyy to have been able to send a clear message to our community and celebrating queer talent, creativity and solidarity!
To close out this year’s Berlinale you have another chance to check out a few of this year’s films today.
We look forward to next year and hope to see you again in 2024.
The moment has come! After celebrating the incredible queer movies of the International Berlin Film Festival for the past month, we now know the names of the 2023 TEDDY AWARD winners.
The 37th edition of the TEDDY AWARD proved once again that there are infinite ways to tell queer stories. Our nominated films of 2023 illustrated this diversity in the best way possible, and we are overjoyed to see the work of all the directors, actors and behind-the-scenes workers being praised and appreciated. Unfortunately, at the end of the day, only one can win!
Without further ado, here are the 2023 winners. And the TEDDY goes to…
Talented conductor Lydia Tár has established herself in the male-dominated world of classical music. When she arrives in Berlin as the first woman appointed to conduct a major German orchestra, she is at the peak of her career. Between commitments and concerts on both sides of the Atlantic, she is preparing for a much anticipated recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. But a shadow suddenly falls over this charismatic figure; her performance on the podium suffers and her status begins to falter. Past decisions and the impact they had on a young musician resurface and Tár risks falling victim to the same obsessions again, complicating her relationship with her concertmaster and partner (played by Nina Hoss) and jeopardising her career and the reputation of the entire orchestra.T ÁR, which according to director Todd Field is a film “by” Cate Blanchett, without whom it would never have seen the light of day, is the portrait of a memorable female figure, ambitious and complex, that takes a critical look at the classical music business. A film capable of expressing an extraordinary musical passion, and also a tribute to Berlin and what makes it the city it is.
