Schweizer Filmpreis, Quartz 2011 (Swiss Film Prize) - winners

Tonight, the Schweizer Filmakademie (Swiss Film Academy) held their awards ceremony at the KKL Luzern (Culture and Convention Centre) for their 2011 Schweizer Filmpreis ‎(Swiss Film Prizes), also known as the "Quartz". Schweizer Filmakademie moderator Susanne Kunz hosted the ceremony, with around 900 guests in attendance.

La petite chambre (The Little Room) came out on top with awards for Best Fiction Film and Best Screenplay for writer-directors Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond. It won out over Cosa voglio di più (Come Undone), Der Sandmann (The Sandman), Sennentuntschi, and Stationspiraten (Ward Pirates) for the main Best Fiction Film prize.

Der Sandmann (The Sandman), Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi and Mike Schaerer’s Stationspiraten (Ward Pirates) had led with three nominations each. The only award won between the three of them was a Best Actor prize for Scherwin Amini of Stationspiraten. However, a Special Jury Award was given to Gerald Damovsky for his Production Design for Sennentuntschi.

The winner for Best Documentary was Cleveland vs. Wall Street, one of several English-language films amongst the French, Italian and German-speaking titles representing Switzerland's official languages. 

Producer Marcel Hoehn was given an Honourary Award. His career dates back to Rolf Lyssy’s Die Schweizermacher (The Swissmakers) in 1978, which remains the most successful Swiss film of the last forty years
