An Icon Of The International Stage & Screen
Geoffrey Rush Receives The Berlinale Camera

Geoffrey Rush
Geoffrey Rush for over 40 years has been recognized as one of the world's most remarkable character actors, equally at home on stage and screen. The Australian is among the few to have won the Triple Crown of Acting: the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony - as well as countless other awards for his performances. Since 1999 he has starred in eight films presented at the Berlin International Film Festival. Rush made his stage debut when he was just 20. In the following years, he developed an extraordinary repertoire of classical theatre roles. He first performed on the big screen in 1981. His tour-de-force portrayal of the highly dysfunctional but brilliant pianist David Helfgott in Shine (dir: Scott Hicks, 1996) won him an Academy Award. He also received Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for two period dramas, Shakespeare in Love (dir: John Madden) and Quills (dir: Philip Kaufman), and participated with them in the Berlinale Competition in 1999 and 2001 respectively. Rush starred in The Tailor of Panama (dir: John Boorman), which was also screened in the 2001 Competition. In 2003, he portrayed Captain Hector Barbossa, one of the villains in Pirates of the Caribbean (dir: Gore Verbinski), for the first time. The huge international success of this adventure film led to three sequels - in all of them Rush plays the roguish Captain. In 2006, Rush returned to the Berlinale Competition, appearing in the drug film Candy (dir: Neil Armfield). In 2011, he could be seen in the Berlinale Special, in Tom Hooper's touching drama The King's Speech. Among many other prizes, he received the BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor for this film. Rush's most recent appearance at the Festival was in 2013 when he presented the thriller The Best Offer by Giuseppe Tornatore in the Berlinale Special. In this year's Competition programme he is playing the lead in Stanley Tucci's Final Portrait (out of competition). Geoffrey Rush will be awarded the Berlinale Camera at the Berlinale Palast at 7.00 pm today - Sat, February 11.

Feminist Monika Treut Mark On Lesbian Cinema Honored
Monika Truet
Monika Treut, director, producer and author, is the recipient of the Special TEDDY Award at the Berlinale 2017. The award is presented by the friends' association TEDDY e.V. to a filmmaker whose accomplishments have made an especially significant contribution to the characterisation of queer filmmaking over the years. Treut's mark on feminist and lesbian cinema has liberated this genre of filmmaking since the 1980s. She has also had a great impact on the German-speaking independent film scene and inspired practitioners and audiences across world, and enriched the US American indie cinema as a trailblazer for the New Queer Cinema. The boldness of and iconoclastic approach to her subjects and aesthetics are closely linked with the liberating energy of the Spontex movement of the 1970s. Her documentary Gendernauts won the TEDDY Award for Best Documentary Film in 1999 as well as audience prizes internationally. Her feature film debut with Elfi Mikesch Seduction: The Cruel Woman in 1985 showcased at the Berlinale - together with twelve of other films. In honour of her award Panorama will be screening her second feature film, the 1989 classic Die Jungfrauenmaschine (Virgin Machine) on February 17th.
