As the 2013  Berlin International Film Festival wound up, the Golden Bear went to Calin Peter Netzer's Romanian drama "Child's Pose," about a wealthy mother trying to extricate her imprisoned son. Eastern European films scored many awards (see full list below).

The Silver Bear for best director went to American David Gordon Green for "Prince Avalanche," which debuted at Sundance. The Silver Bear for Best Screenplay went to Iranian "Closed Curtain," by Jafar Panahi; "Promised Land," directed by Gus Van Sant and starring writer-producers Matt Damon and John Krasinski, earned a Special Mention.

The Panorama Audience Award went to narrative feature "The Broken Circle Breakdown" (Belgium/Netherlands), directed by Felix van Groeningen, and documentary "The Act of Killing" (Denmark/Norway/Great Britain ), directed by Joshua Oppenheimer. (Review here.) Altogether over 28,000 votes were cast and counted.

This year the Panorama presented 52 productions from 33 countries, of which 20 screened in the Panorama Dokumente series. While in the category fictional films "The Broken Circle Breakdown" took the lead early on and won by a clear margin over second place "Reaching for the Moon," from Brazilian Bruno Barreto, while it was a closer race among the documentaries, with "The Act of Killing" beating Brit doc "Salma," directed by Kim Longinotto.
