The Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize went to Death in Sarajevo and its director Danis Tanovic.
The best director award went to France's Mia Hansen-Love for her film Things to Come.
The best actor award went to Majd Mastoura for his role in the Tunisian film Inhebbek Hedi, while Trine Dyrholm took best actress for her role in the Danish film The Commune.
The best script award went to Polish director and screenwriter Tomasz Wasilewski for United States of Love.
An award for a film that opens new perspectives was given to the eight-hour Filipino film A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery, directed by Lav Diaz.
Festival director Dieter Kosslick said that watching Diaz's film was a unique experience, not just for its length, but also because the premiere started quite early in the morning.
