Berlinale delivers its coveted “Bears” today (5). In general, the jury awards the best actor and the best actress, each with a Silver Bear. But this year, the festival wants to be a pioneer in the fight against discrimination and gender stereotypes, a current theme in the world of cinema after the “#MeToo” scandal.

“For the first time, the awards will be defined in a gender-neutral way”, with a simple “Silver Bear for Best Performance” and a “Silver Bear for Best Supporting Role”, the organizers announced.
