25th Teddy Award Award Winners

I imagine that the 25th Anniversary party must be in full boom right now (have seen pics) but organizers had time to upload winners at their site and if you wish to check the news there go here or go to Berlinale official site here and scroll down to Teddy Awards.

Winners are in *BLUE.


Can you believe that Teddy is 25! Time goes by very fast. Congratulations! As always most films are gay interest and for a change I’m going to use the classification that organizers use: Teddy Category, where each film is classified as L, G, Q, and T. These are the films that are competing for the Teddy Award.
