The Berlinale's Teddy Awards, which honor gay content films screening in the festival, awarded three films in different categories, each with a 3000 euro cash prize. The Teddy for best feature went to Zero Chou's "Spider Lillies" (Ci-Qing), with "La Leon" by Santiago Otheguy receiving a special mention. Best doc went to Esther B. Robinson's "A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory." Actor Helmut Berger (The Godfather Trilogy) received a Teddy in honor of his lifetime of work. "Notes On a Scandal" by Richard Eyre won the audience prize. This year, no prize was given for short film. The juried prizes were chosen by eight members of queer and other film festivals.
