The Silver Bear for the best director honors the best performance by a director in a competition film (feature film) at the annual Berlin Film Festival . The award was first presented at the sixth edition of the film festival in 1956 . The competition jury, which is mostly composed of international filmmakers, votes on the award of the prize.

Award winners

American filmmakers were the most frequently awarded directors' awards (10 wins), followed by their colleagues from France (7), Italy (6) and Great Britain (5 wins). The Italian Mario Monicelli (1957, 1976 and 1982) was able to triumph three times , while the Indian Satyajit Ray (1964 and 1965) and the Spaniard Carlos Saura (1966 and 1968) were both successful twice. The Danish Astrid Henning-Jensen (1979 for Winterkinder ), the Pole Małgorzata Szumowska (2015 for Body ) and the French Mia Hansen-Løve (2016 for Everything that is coming ) are the only women to receive the award.

Directors from German-language cinema were successful in 1961, 1990, 2005, 2011, 2012 and 2019 when Bernhard Wicki ( Das Wunder des Malachias ), Michael Verhoeven ( The Terrible Girl ), Marc Rothemund ( Sophie Scholl - The Last Days ), Ulrich Köhler ( sleeping sickness ), Christian Petzold ( Barbara ) and Angela Schanelec ( I was at home, but ... ) prevailed against the competition.
