Berlinale: Honorary Golden Bear


The Honorary Golden Bear

The Italian costume designer Milena Canonero has received an Honorary Golden Bear for her lifetime achievement. The Homage of the 67th Berlin International Film Festival is also dedicated to her.

“Milena Canonero is an extraordinary costume designer. With her designs she has contributed decisively to the style of many cinematic masterpieces. With this year’s Homage, we would like to honour a great artist as well as direct attention to another film profession,” says Berlinale Director Dieter Kosslick.

The presentation of the Honorary Golden Bear at the Berlinale Palast on February 16, 2017 was accompanied by a screening of the film The Shining (United Kingdom / USA 1980) by Stanley Kubrick.
