Silver Bear for Best Actor

The Silver Bear for Best Actor (German: Silberner Bär/Bester Darsteller) is the Berlin International Film Festival's award for achievement in performance by an actor. It is selected by the jury of the festival for films in the official competition slate.

The award was first presented in 1956, and can be for lead or supporting roles. The award was not presented in 1969, 1970, 1973, and 1974. In 2011, the award was given to the entire male cast of A Separation. Sidney Poitier, Jean Gabin, Fernando Fernán Gómez, and Denzel Washington are the only actors that have won the award more than once.
