The FIPRESCI prize went to Yusup Razykov’s "Shame" and the FEDEORA award to "Velvet Terrorists."

Oliver Stone, who screened yet another new cut of "Alexander" as well as his "History of the United States" series (THR interview here), gave an emotional acceptance speech when accepting his Crystal Globe For Contribution to World Cinema:

“There has always been a tension that haunted me way before Vietnam. My mother; my father; life itself, all my life. All these tensions will not allow me to let this award – or any this or any others – to stop me looking for the next undiscovered land. I was born an explorer and when I cease exploring I will die. In that spirit I will say do not cease being out there young dreamers that exploration of yourselves. You will meet again and again deceit. But the next time out you will win this battle. Persist. The world Is always in need of regeneration and – filmmakers amongst others – can combine that somewhere out in this crowd. So if you can you, or several of you, can truly contribute to this world.”

The list of winners is below.
