Grand Prix 2005. 3-Iron (Bin-Jip) by Kim Ki-duk, the Korean filmmaker, has been voted, by 300 members of FIPRESCI, Best Film of the Year 2004/2005. The prize has been created to back the most audacious, original and personal cinema of the year. Andrei Plakhov, president of FIPRESCI, presented the prize to Kim Ki-duk at the opening ceremony of the San Sebastian International Film Festival on September 15, 2005. Kim Ki-duk has in recent years earned himself a place of honour on the world movie chessboard: Bin-jip had earlier already won the Silver Lion for Best Director at Venice Festival in 2004, the FIPRESCI Prize at the same festival, and the Golden Spike at Valladolid 2004.

Michael Haneke

Michael Haneke was the winner of the European Film Awards 2005. His film Hidden (Caché), which had premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and won the Best Director's Prize 'only', became Best European Film, Haneke was honored as European Director, Daniel Auteuíl became European Actor of 2005, additionally the editing was awarded. And Michael Haneke won our prize, the European Film Academy Critics Award — Prix FIPRESCI. Hidden, writes Klaus Eder in his review, is a merciless portrayal of bourgeoisie. "His film shows the connection between affluence and historical and social thoughtlessness, between guilt and suppression — attitudes that are symptomatic of contemporary Western societies."
