Face-Off: Gender Neutral Awardsby penchofifteenpolls | created - 3 months ago | updated - 2 months ago | Public
At the 70th Berlin Film Festival, Paula Beer and Elio Germano won the awards for Best Actress and Best Actor. They will be the last persons to win each award.
Starting in 2021, the Berlinale is dropping both awards, which will be replaced by gender neutral Leading Performance and Supporting Performance Awards.
Both men and women will be eligible to win the awards in a movement described by the co-heads of the festival, Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian, as "a signal for a more gender-sensitive awareness in the film industry."
