The German Star of India for the best feature film comes with a prize of €4,000 and will be awarded by honourary consul Andreas Lapp.

The German Star of India for the best documentary and best short film are accompanied with prizes of €1,000 and will be chosen by a three-person jury. Audiences will choose the winner of the Audience Award.
