China Wins Big at the Berlin International Film Festival

The 69th Berlin International Film Festival took place from February 7 to 17 in Berlin, Germany. China came out with grand prizes, including the Silver Bear for Best Actor and Actress for Wang Jingchun (王景春) and Yong Mei (詠梅)—the first time in history in which both acting awards were given to Chinese artists of the same film. Wang and Yong are stars of Wang Xiaoshuai’s (王小帥) So Long, My Son <地久天長>, a film that was in competition for the highest prize, the Golden Bear.

So Long, My Son wasn’t the only Chinese film to win accolades. Xiang Zi’s (相梓) A Dog Barking at the Moon <再見南屏晚鐘> won a Teddy Award, a film award dedicated to films with LGBT topics. The 1998 Hong Kong film Hold You Tight <愈快樂愈墮落> directed by Stanley Kwan (關錦鵬) and the 2007 Taiwanese film Spider Lillies <刺青> by Zero Chou (周美玲) also won Teddy Awards.

A First Farewell <第一次的離別> directed by new coming female director Lina Wang (王麗娜) won Best Film in the Generation Kplus competition.
