Berlinale Launches Endowed Documentary Award

For many years now, the Berlin International Film Festival has been committed to documentary film and diverse documentary forms.

Thanks to the support of Glashütte Original, watch manufacturer from Saxony, the Berlin International Film Festival is launching a new award, the Glashütte Original Documentary Award.

This prize for the best documentary film will be endowed with € 50,000, funded by Glashütte Original. A total of about 18 documentary entries from the current programmes of the Competition, Panorama, Forum, Generation, Berlinale Special and Perspektive Deutsches Kino sections as well as the Culinary Cinema special series will be nominated for the Glashütte Original Documentary Award. A three-member jury will pick the winner – the prize money will be split between the film’s director and producer.

Besides the prize money, Glashütte Original will also provide the trophy, which will be finely crafted in the Saxon manufactory and will be presented to the director of the winning film.

The prize will be awarded during the official Award Ceremony in the Berlinale Palast.

Here are the official documentary award guidelines: glashuette_original_documentary_award_guidelines
