(Germany) and Börkur Sigthorsson's Vultures (Iceland). The Retrospective was dedicated to English filmmaker Bruce Robinson and the Tribute to Oscar-winning American actor Keith Carradine. Both were present, and the latter was honoured with a star on the OLB-Walk of Fame.

The main award, the German Independence Award for Best Film in the Independent section, went to Mikhail Raskhodnikov's Temporary Difficulties (Russia). The German Independence Award for Best Short went to Fauve by Jeremy Comte (Canada). This year, the Seymour Cassel Award for Outstanding Performance went to two actresses: Victoria Carmen Sonne for the aforementioned Holiday and Gabriela Ramos for Is That You? (Cuba/UK) by Rudy Riverón Sánchez.

With more than 15,500 admissions to the various different festival venues (including a prison, where guests and inmates could enjoy the screenings together), the organisers consider this 25th edition of the Oldenburg IFF (which unspooled from 12-16 September) a "roaring event and a complete success".
