In 2000 we received a prize for an outstanding documentary film programme and in 2001, for our engagement with short films, we received a prize for our outstanding short film programme. In 2002, 2003, and 2005 this engagement with short and documentary film was also awarded.

On the recommendation of the jury of the "Cinema Programming Prize, Berlin-Brandenburg" we received an award for our outstanding film programming for the years 1999 and 2006.

In 2002 the DEFA- foundation awarded the ACUD Cinema a programming prize for the "conscious work with young German and European film, which makes up more than 80% of the programme".
