The Best Producer trophy went to Stefan Arndt for Cloud Atlas, a English-language German production by the Wachowski siblings and German director Tom Tykwer. The film is the most expensive German-produced film ever.
Days after winning Best Foreign Film at the Golden Globes, Michael Haneke picked up the Best Directing Award for Amour. Though Haneke is Austrian, the film is a co-production of Germany, France and Austria. However, it will not be competing at this year's Deutscher Filmpreis (German Film Awards).
Only one film took more than a single prize. The comedy Oh Boy won twice, taking Best Actor (Tom Schilling) and Best Screenplay.
The Ehrenpreis des Bayerischen Ministerpräsidenten (Honourary Prize of the Bavarian Prime Minister) was presented to director Margarethe von Trotta. Her film Hannah Arendt was winner of Best Actress (Barbara Sukowa).
The jury for the Bayerischer Filmpreis consisted of Isolde Barth, Bettina Reitz, Susanne Petz, Benedict Neuenfels, Prof. Manfred Heid, Steffen Kuchenreuther, Florian Koch, Wolfgang Limmer, Prof. Dr. Klaus Schaefer, Hans Steinbichler and Dr. Carolin Kerschbaumer.
