Golden Bear for Brazilian Film

Director Jose Padilha collected the Golden Bear in Berlin
The Elite Squad, a violent tale of corrupt drug-squad officers in Brazil, has won the Golden Bear, the top prize at the annual Berlin Film Festival.
This weekend, the Berlin International Film Festival concluded with its awards ceremony. Christina Tilmann approves the jury's decision to give its top prize to José Padilha: "Taken together, the Golden Bear for 'Tropa de Elite' [Elite Troop] and the jury prize for 'Standard Operating Procedure' turn this into a kind of Nobel Peace Prize of film.

In China The Largest Snow Sculpture Ever Created

Romantic Feelings is a staggering 115ft high and 656ft long - the largest snow sculpture ever created.

600 sculptors from 40 countries have used 120,000 cubic feet of snow and ice to create the Olympic themed landscape - a vista of Russian churches, French cathedrals, Chinese palaces and, of course, an ice Acropolis.
This sculpture is the centerpiece of the Ice And Snow Festival, held annually in the northeastern city of Harbin, China.
