Year given[edit]

The years given in the list are the years of the ceremonies. Sometimes a winner film is of the same year (I assume because it premieres in the Festival) but many of the films are of the previous year. Is it correct that each award is given for the previous year's films, like in Academy awards? I ask because I am including Golden Bear awards along with the other awards in the years in film (as in 1996 in film). In the other awards the ceremony is actually takes place in the next year. Should the same be done with the Berlin awards? Hoverfish 21:07, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

It depends. The festival takes place in Febuary, so most films that are shown were made the previous year. But some are also finished shortly before the festival, and are therefore from the same year in which the ceremony is held. I hope that helps! Kayanna89 (talk) 19:32, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Silver Bear chart[edit]

Using info at the Berlin festival's website, I started a chart for Silver Bear winners for Best Director, Actress & Actor (I gave up trying to figure out the differences among the various Jury awards, some of which seem to change meaning over the years).

I don't know if there's a way to add a subpage to an article in order to work on time-consuming charts, so I'm going to put it here and if it needs to be moved, then by all means move it. I'm not sure how to split the secondary columns (there are co-winners for some years in some categories), so others more skilled in this stuff will have to handle that kind of thing. (note: there are more entries than needed, so best to work backward from most recent winners) RoyBatty42 01:23, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

2007[edit]

The entry for Hanro Smitsman needs checking. I've provided a citation, but he more I read it the more it confuses me! Fiddle Faddle (talk) 16:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

"Festival Programme" section[edit]

This has been inserted twice now by users. Most of it is substantively the same as the descriptions available at http://internationalfilmfestivals.suite101.com/article.cfm/berlinale_2010. It is insufficient merely to erase a few words here and there, or to change a single sentence amidst a block of text. The descriptions should be properly re-written so as to comply with Wikipedia's policies on citing sources and plagiarism. This is clearly outlined in the plagiarism policy page, in which it is stated that instances of plagiarism - whether intentional or not - can be remedied by by "rewriting text completely into your own words". It is further outlined in Wikipedia's discussion of close paraphrasing. The marginal edits made to the original Suite 101 article are minimal and hence do not meet the threshold of sufficient rephrasing. If the person who copy-pasted the sections from the Suite 101 website is in fact the original author, they should donate the copyrighted material in accordance with Wikipedia procedures. Cyril Washbrook (talk) 04:52, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

I reworded some of the sentences from the section "Festival Programme" added by anonymous users. However I didn't know the information is from suite101.com. I think we could keep the basic structure and the main point of the section (list the different programs of the festival, i.e. "Competition", "Panorama", "Generation", etc.), but re-remove the content; still, a brief explanation of the programs would be needed.--TheLeopard (talk) 05:32, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, the information is definitely useful, and I agree with you that the basic structure is worth continuing. The Berlinale website includes a rundown of each individual category, so I think we can start over with the descriptions while keeping the structure. (In this case, there isn't an issue with using a self-published source.) I'll have a shot at rewriting the section. Cyril Washbrook (talk) 08:48, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I've now rewritten the section based on the information supplied in the Berlinale's publicity material. If there are any further issues with the rewrite, feel free to jump in. Cyril Washbrook (talk) 09:45, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

History section[edit]

I think a History section for the main article would be nice.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.53.13.187 (talk) 00:29, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Berlinale is named NO.2 Film Festival in the world next to Cannes.[1]

yap. —Preceding unsigned comment added by FinnishDriver (talkcontribs) 09:20, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Small Golden Berlin Bear[edit]

Isn't there/wasn't there a short-film award called something like "Small Golden Berlin Bear"? Le songe des chevaux sauvages seems to have won it in 1960. I don't see it in the article. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:40, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Largest?[edit]

The article states that it's the largest publicly attended film festival. However, the Toronto International Film Festival also makes the same, or similar, claim. According to its wikipedia article, total admissions were over half a million, vs. Berlinale's 487000. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DanTrent (talkcontribs) 00:22, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Alfred Bauer Award[edit]

Dozens of Wikipedia pages refer to one film or another winning the Alfred Bauer award at the Berlin International Film Festival but this article does not even mention this award, much less describe it.

Can a knowledgeable contributor provide a paragraph on this award? --Ross Fraser (talk) 02:35, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
