In an act of good sportsmanship, Cristian Mungiu pulled his Palme d'Or winner 4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days out of the main competition. The film nonetheless won a special festival award and the Romanian Days award for feature film. Anamaria Marinca received an award for best new Romanian actor for her role in the film.
Among other awards, Icelandic director Ragnar Bragason earned Best Director with his film Children. Luca Lionello won Best Performance for his role in Cover Boy. The Antenna DOP Cristian Cottet won Best Cinematography. And Dark Blue Almost Black, directed by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo, received a jury special mention and the audience award.
At the closing ceremonies, honorary president Tudor Giurgiu and other speakers noted the international prominence of Romanian cinema and called for more state support for Romanian filmmakers. Prime Minister Calin Popescu-Tariceanu and Culture Minister Adrian Iorgulescu congratulated Mungiu and other filmmakers. The ministers invoked the privatization of Romania's state-owned cinemas but stopped short of promising more money for producers.
