The 4th annual Berlin International Film Festival was held from June 18 to June 29, 1954.[1] 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.[2]

David Lean won the Golden Bear by the audience voting for his film Hobson's Choice at the festival.[3]
