George Ivanov and Git Scheynius  
The theme of the festival for this year is FREEDOM. The festival will be open with the film 12 Years a Slave of director Steve McQueen. The screenwriter of this film is John Ridley.
John Ridley will attend the Stockholm Film festival and his movie Jimi: All is by my side is one of the movies nominated to the Bronze Horse Award for Best Film in the Stockholm Film Festival.

The Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Claire Denis, a French director.

Jury statement: Claire Denis refuses to close her eyes to the creative and destructive force
unleashed by human weaknesses. A bold explorer of postcolonial Africa and the dark corners
of modern society, who invites the audience to an exposed universe that is beautiful and raw.
This year's Lifetime Achievement Award goes to a filmmaker who continues to seek what
others turn away from, always fearless and with a rare eye for visual poetry”.

The Visionary Award is to Peter Greenaway, a British film director. Greenaway will be in Stockholm to receive the Bronze Horse on November 8 and meet the audience during a Face2face.

Jury Statement: ”Whether men are drowning by numbers, bodies are turned into art or savage nature is transformed into haute cuisine, Peter Greenaway has always challenged the spectator like a true modern visionary. By questioning traditional notions of artistic expression and combining the latest techniques with his vast knowledge of the classic art forms, this year’s recipient of the Stockholm Visionary Award has indeed created a new cinematic language."
