The Berlin International Film Festival mourns the actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In 2006 the Berlinale Competition presented Capote, the film directed by Bennett Miller which won Philip Seymour Hoffman a Golden Globe and later an Oscar as Best Actor.

This exceptional performer also appeared in Berlinale films like Owning Mahowny (Panorama 2003) and Spike Lee's 25th Hour (Competition 2003). He was unforgettable in the roles he played in two Berlinale films in 2000: Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley and Golden Bear winner Magnolia directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
