A new award for significant cinematic form

Impressive images, significant subjects, courageous protagonists: this is the art of the documentary film, honoured this year for the first time by Glashütte Original and the Berlinale together. The newly created Glashütte Original Documentary Award is the high point (to date) of the partnership that began in 2011 between the Saxon watch manufactory and the Berlin International Film Festival. The Documentary Award, worth 50,000 euros, will be presented February 18th during the official Berlinale Awards Ceremony in the Berlinale Palast.
