"Spider Lillies" and "A Walk Into the Sea" Win Berlin Teddy Awards

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. [Brian Brooks]
