In the meantime, a number of independent juries* award prizes at the Berlinale. The high level of quality and diversity of the films are an invitation for critical examination and discerning judgment that opens up new directions. Accordingly the independent juries award their prizes along different criteria, in accordance to the special intention linked to each award. Many of these awards went to Balkan films.


THE ECUMENICAL JURY
Since 1992, the international film organisations of the Protestant and Catholic Churches - INTERFILM and SIGNIS - have been represented by the Ecumenical Jury. It consists of six members and awards its main prize to a film entered in the Competition. It also awards two other prizes, both worth 2,500 Euros, one to a film from the Panorama and one to a film in the Forum.
The prizes go to directors who have succeeded in portraying actions or human experiences that are in keeping with the Gospels, or in sensitising viewers to spiritual, human or social values.

The Ecumenical Jury Special Mention - Competition 2013:
An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker (Epizoda u životu berača željeza), by Danis Tanović
Jury Statement:
For spotlighting people who are often invisible, and portraying their dignity, resilience, and invincible will to live.

The Ecumenical Jury Prize - Forum 2013:
Jury Statement:
For its compelling presentation of the human capacity to overcome seemingly invincible prejudices, and to achieve healing through reconciliation.


PRIZES OF THE FIPRESCI JURIES
The juries of the "Fédération Internationale de la Presse Cinématographique" (FIPRESCI), the international film critics association, view films from the Competition program,  the Panorama and Forum sections. They award a prize for the best film in each of these sections.
