The Deutscher Filmpreis (German Film Awards, also called Lola Awards) is an annual German awards ceremony honouring cinematic achievements in the German film business. It is the most important German movie award and the most highly endowed German cultural award with cash prizes totalling about three million euros.
From 1951 to 2004 it was awarded by a commission, but since 2005 the award has been organized by the German Film Academy (Deutsche Filmakademie). The Federal Commissioner for Cultural and Media Affairs has been responsible for the administration of the prize since 1999. The awards ceremony is traditionally held in Berlin. Since 2017, Pantaflix became the official partner of the German Film Awards.
The 70th presentation of the German Film Award will be something special. It can be seen live for the first time on Friday, April 24, 2020, at 10.15 p.m. in the first. The ARD joint production is created under the leadership of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb). Live show without guests The actor and entertainer Edin Hasanovic leads the show, together with a DJ and a dog. There are no guests on site in a 2400 sqm studio hall. But Edin Hasanovic is still in good company. Laudators such as Anke Engelke, Charly Hübner, Iris Berben, Jannis Niewöhner and many others will come to the studio for a short visit or be added from home. And even the kangaroo gets involved! The State Minister for Culture and the Media, Monika Grütters, and the Academy President Ulrich Matthes are live in the studio to jointly award the prizes in the “Best Feature Film” category.
