4th Berlin International Film Festival
Awards  Golden Bear (Hobson's Choice)

The 4th annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from 18 June to 29 June 1954. This year's festival did not give any official jury prizes, instead awards were given by audience voting. This continued until the FIAPF granted Berlin "A-Status" in 1956. David Lean won the Golden Bear by the audience voting for his film Hobson's Choice at the festival.
