'Yes Men' wins Panorama audience award

Film opened the doc section at the Berlin fest

More Berlinale coverage

BERLIN -- "The Yes Men Save the World," a documentary from anti-globalization pranksters Mike Bonanno, Andy Bichlbaum and Kurt Engfehr has won the audience award for the Panorama section of the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival.

"The Yes Men" opened Panorama's documentary section last week to a more-than-sold-out crowd and has been playing to packed houses in Berlin ever since.

The film follows duo Bichlbaum and Bonanno, aka the Yes Men, as they pose as executives of major companies to expose the evils of global capitalism.

Berlin cinemagoers, listeners to local radio channel RBB and readers of Berlin's Tip magazine voted for the 11th Panorama Audience Award, which will be presented at a ceremony in Berlin Sunday.
