The actress stepped behind the camera for the harrowing movie, about a forbidden romance between a Bosnian woman and a Serbian soldier during the Bosnian War.
Jolie was the guest of honour at the Cinema For Peace Gala in Berlin, Germany and she was handed the special film accolade as partner Brad Pitt looked on.
The movie will premiere in Sarajevo, Bosnia on Tuesday, and Jolie admits she's feeling apprehensive about the showing.
She told reporters, "I'm nervous and I'm excited. I'll probably cry through the entire thing. I'll be very, very moved because, of course, a lot of the people coming are the victims of war so it's going to be heavy."
Could Brad Pitt look more proud in these pictures, as his lady Angelina Jolie picks up another award?
