Adine Pintilie's

Romanian director Adina Pintilie holds her Golden Bear for Best Film she was awarded for the movie "Touch Me Not" during the Berlinale film festival on February 24, 2018 in Berlin. She thanked her actors, who appear completely nude in many graphic scenes throughout the film, "for your courage". The Berlin jury was led by German director Tom Tykwer.

Austria's "The Waldheim Waltz" by Ruth Beckermann about the scandal surrounding the Nazi past of former UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim claimed the best documentary prize.

"This is a film that shows how you can gain ground with nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism", said the director. The discussion about the representation of women, in front of and behind the camera, dominated this year's Berlinale.

Touch Me Not, an experimental, sex-tinged docudrama, was awarded the Golden Bear prize on February 24, making her the second filmmaker from her country to ever win the top spot in Berlin.

Alonso Ruizpalacios and Manuel Alcala won best screenplay for their script to Ruizpalacios' crime drama Museum, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a hapless thief who carries out a daring robbery of priceless artifacts from Mexico's National Museum of Anthropology.
