2nd Berlin International Film Festival

The 2nd annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from 12 to 25 June 1952.[1] The FIAPF prohibited the festival from awarding any official prizes by a jury (which only Cannes and Venice were qualified to do so),[1] instead awards were given by audience voting. This was changed in 1956 when the FIAPF granted Berlin "A-Status" during that year.[1][2]
