Festival date June 6–17, 1951

The 1st annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from June 6 to June 17, 1951.[1] The opening film was Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca.[1]

At this very first Berlin Festival, the Golden Bear award was introduced, and it was awarded to the best film in each of five categories: drama, comedy, crime or adventure, music film, and documentary. This system disappeared already the following year, partly due to the fact that films that year were voted on by the audience.
