Wong Kar Wai’s jury gave Romanian film Child’s Pose the top prize Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival this evening. The story follows a mother trying to save her son from prison. In accepting the award, director Călin Peter Netzer spoke of “commercial censorhip against arthouse cinema” and thanked the Berlinale, sales agents and distributors for “bringing arthouse cinema to the public.” David Gordon Green was named Best Director for the well-received Prince Avalanche, a film he remade from the Icelandic movie Either Way, transporting the action to Texas. Magnolia acquired the film in Sundance. The hotly-tipped Paulina Garcia took the Best Actress prize for her turn in Gloria which Roadside Attractions acquired earlier in the festival. And, Nazif Mujic was named Best Actor for Danis Tanovic’s Jury Grand Prix winner An Episode In The Life Of An Iron Picker.

While the competition roster at this year’s Berlin Film Festival left some cold, the last two years have produced a foreign language Oscar winner (2011’s A Separation) and two foreign language Oscar nominees (this year’s A Royal Affair and War Witch). And another film that won a prize in 2012, Sister, was also shortlisted for the foreign language Oscar this year. So, it will be interesting to watch the international careers of this year’s winners to see if the trend continues. Below is a list of the main winners along with the various sidebar and independent jury prizes which were announced earlier today:
