At a star studded ceremony in London The Act of Killing went home with the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary Film, beating off stiff competition from The Armstrong Lie, Blackfish, Tim's Vermeer and We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks. 

Director Joshua Oppenheimer was in London to collect the award. Joshua thanked everyone who had worked on the film in the UK, Denmark and in Indonesia and talked about how the film is starting to catalyse a change for how Indonesia talks about its past, and asking governments to take responsibility. Joshua dedicated the award to his Anonymous Indonesian co-director.
