Awarded by Charlotte Rampling, the Best Screenplay went to Fatih Akin for The Edge of Heaven.

Fatih Akin: “Thank you much, the Jury. I have to write a new screenplay and that will inspire me a lot. I want to thank all the people who have worked on the film, everybody, whole crew. I want to thank my wife. I have one message for Turkey. All is one, united we stand, divided we fall.”

During the press conference for the winners, Fatih Akin proudly declared: “I am so proud to bring this award to Hamburg and celebrate with my friends. That’s right, I’ve always dreamed about coming here and have a film in competition. To be in competition is so hard, this is madness, but once you’re here, you really get addicted to it. I can’t wait to have another film here in competition…I hope 2 or 3 years if everything works well.
