On Saturday evening, February 24, 2024, the 74th Berlin International Film Festival came to an end with the presentation of the festival awards. With 35 major German productions, more German films were represented at this year's Berlinale than ever before. There were also numerous awards, including the prize for Best Screenplay for Matthias Glasner for DYING and the prize for Best Film for DIRECT ACTION.

Over the past ten days from February 15 to 25, a total of 199 films from 51 countries were screened. With a total of over 50 German productions and co-productions, the line-up was a very special record from a German perspective. It shows the great interest and quality of German film when such a large number is selected for an internationally important film festival like the Berlinale.
