Silver Bear / Outstanding Artistic Achievement

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2008 awardee: composer Jonny Greenwood

The Silver Bear for an outstanding artistic achievement honors at the annually organized Film Festival Berlin filmmakers from the categories camera , cutting , music , costumes or Design who have participated in a competition film (feature film).

The award was presented for the first time at the 58th edition of the festival in 2008 and replaced the Silver Bears previously awarded in the categories of film music (2002–2007) and “special artistic achievement” (1956–2007) or “outstanding individual achievement” ( 1956-2005). In the past, awards were also given to directing or acting in the last two categories, although there were separate Silver Bear categories ( best director , best actress , best actor ). In the meantime, Silver Bears have also been awarded as special prizes for individual artistic achievements.

The competition jury, which is mostly composed of international filmmakers, votes on the award of the prize.
