With the Honorary Golden Bear, the Berlinale pays tribute to important figures in the world of film. The award is presented for an exceptional artistic career and is given to the guest of honour of the Homage.

The Honorary Golden Bear is presented during a ceremony, usually followed by a screening of one of the recipient’s films.
