The 2nd annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from June 12 to June 25, 1952.[1] The FIAPF banned the festival from awarding any official prizes, instead awards were given by audience voting. The ban was lifted in 1956.[1][2]

Golden Bear was awarded to Swedish film Hon dansade en sommar by audience vote,[3] despite featuring a nude scene which caused much sensation at the time. Orson Welles's Othello was banned from the festival due to his alleged anti-German remarks.[4] The festival held a retrospective on the Silent films.[5]
