The Panorama prizes have been handed out at the Berlin International Film Festival, with top honours going to Baqyt (Happiness) and Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm (Love, Deutschmarks and Death).

Askar Uzabayev picked up the 24th Panorama Audience Award for best feature film for Baqyt, while Cem Kaya collected the Panorama Dokumente award for Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm.

The prizes were awarded by the Berlinale section Panorama, in partnership with radioeins and rbb television (Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg). In all, 8000 cinema-goers’ votes were cast over the course of the Panorama section of the festival. The complete winners’ list is below. 

In the film Baqyt, the main character is an orange-clothed influencer, whose brand is ‘Happiness’, contrasting with her dark and brutal home life. Judges said, “This film shows us what it costs to escape the trap of misogyny.”
