  • The 2nd annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from 12 June – 25 June 1952. The FIAPF banned the festival from awarding any official prizes by a jury, instead awards were given by audience voting. The ban was lifted in 1956 when the FIAPF granted Berlin "A-Status" during that year. Golden Bear was awarded to Swedish film Hon dansade en sommar by audience vote, despite featuring a nude scene which caused much sensation at the time. Orson Welles's Othello was banned from the festival due to his alleged anti-German remarks. The festival held a retrospective on the Silent films.
