The Munich Film Festival (28 June-7 July) came to an end this weekend by announcing this year's winners. Besides the CineMerit Awards that went to Emma Thompson and Terry Gilliam, another prominent figure, Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, was saluted for his latest opus, presented in the CineMasters Competition: the Cannes-winning Shoplifters. Another Croisette favourite, Danish director Ali Abbasi's Border [+lee también:

Hsin-Yao Huang's The Great Buddha + (Taiwan) snagged a Special Mention.
The German Cinema New Talent Awards, which go to the best newcomers in the main New German Cinema section in the categories of director, producer, screenwriter and actor/actress, come with a total of €70,000 in prize money. Best Director was granted to first-time helmer Eva Trobisch for All Good, a strong, courageous film on rape and denial, which also earned her main actress Aenne Schwarz the Best Acting Award and won over the FIPRESCI jury. The Best Producer Award went to Anna de Paoli for Linus de Paoli's A Young Man With High Potential [+lee también:

The Best Scriptwriting Award was granted to Damian John Harper for the "hard-hitting and disturbing screenplay" of the German-US co-production In the Middle of the River [+lee también:

The Bayern 2 and SZ Audience Award, for which all films screening in the festival are eligible, also went to a title from the New German Cinema section: Oliver Haffner's Wackersdorf [+lee también:

The One-Future-Prize, presented since 1986 to a film that shows, ethically as well as aesthetically, that our world has one common future, was won by Roya Sadat's A Letter to the President, which was the Afghan entry for the latest Oscar for Best Foreign-language Film. Christian Krönes and Florian Weigensamer's frighteningly real dystopia Welcome to Sodom [+lee también:

The German Cinema Award for Peace - The Bridge, awarded to film artists whose work builds bridges and inspires tolerance and humanitarianism, went to four separate winners: Ziad Doueiri for The Insult [+lee también:
