Berlinale 2015: The Panorama Audience Awards go to Que Horas Ela Volta? and Tell Spring Not To Come This Year

The public has cast its votes: the 17th Panorama Audience Awards - presented by the Berlinale Panorama section in collaboration with radioeins, Berlin-Brandenburg’s public radio and television station (rbb), and tip, Berlin’s city magazine (Raufeld Verlag) - go to Que Horas Ela Volta? for Best Fiction Film and to Tell Spring Not To Come This Year for Best Documentary Film.

The official award ceremony will be held on the Berlinale’s cinema day for the public (Berlinale Publikumstag), Sunday, February 15, at 5.00 pm in CinemaxX 7 at Potsdamer Platz.
The awards will be presented by Panorama director Wieland Speck, radioeins programme manager Robert Skuppin and tip chief editor Stefanie Dörre. Radioeins film expert Knut Elstermann will host the event. Directly after the ceremony, the winning fiction film will be shown. A screening of the winning documentary film will follow at 8.00 pm, also in CinemaxX 7.

The Panorama Audience Award has been given since 1999. Since 2011, both the best fiction film and the best documentary film receive awards.
During the Berlinale, moviegoers were asked to rate the films shown in the Panorama section on the cards received after the screenings. A total of 31,200 votes were cast and counted.

This year the Panorama presented 52 feature-length films from 38 countries, of which 18 screened in the Panorama Dokumente series.

While in the category fiction film Que Horas Ela Volta? took the lead early on, in the category documentary film it remained exciting until the very end.
