"Berlinale Panorama 40": A conversation with Wieland Speck



In the context of the retrospective dedicated to the 40 years of Berlinale's Panorama section, which Queer Lisboa 23 is putting together at the Portuguese Cinematheque, the Goethe-Institut invites Wieland Speck for a conversation with the audience.

Filmmaker, founder of the TEDDY Award, and director of Panorama from 1993 to 2017, succeeding Manfred Salzgeber in the role, Speck will talk with João Ferreira, Queer Lisboa’s artistic director. In this conversation, we will learn more about Speck's work and challenges as a film programmer and head of the Panorama section, namely on the aesthetic and political challenges film curators face nowadays, but also about the origins and importance of the TEDDY Award, his filmmaking work, culminating on a broader reflection on the past, present, and future of queer cinema.

The conversation will take place at the Goethe-Institut auditorium in Lisbon, on the 23rd of September, at 6pm. Entry is free.
