Debra Granik's drama Winter's Bone was chosen as the Best Film at the 2010 Stockholm International Film Festival, which wrapped up last Nov. 28. In the last week or so, Winter's Bone also topped the Gotham Awards and earned a slew of Spirit Award nominations. The film's star, Jennifer Lawrence, was Stockholm's Best Actress, while the film itself also received the International Film Critics' (FIPRESCI) prize.

The Best Actor was George Pistereanu for Romania's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar entry, If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle.

The 2010 edition of the Stockholm Film Festival was attended by 130,000 moviegoers who, according to the festival's press release, gave a standing ovation to Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Harriet Andersson (the star of Ingmar Bergman's Through a Glass Darkly), got to watch Gus Van Sant and Stellan Skarsgård slap each other “open heartedly at the Skandia Theater stage,” and witnessed jury chair Holly Hunter as she “raised the festival spirit.”

In addition to the screening of more than 180 films and assorted homages and festivities, Van Sant, filmmaker Shane Meadows, Oscar-winning editor Bob Murawski, and visual-effects artist Gareth Edwards (Best Director at the 2010 British Independent Film Awards for Monsters) held master classes for Swedish filmmakers.

Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award 2010
Harriet Andersson receives Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award 2010 with the motivation: With a career spanning over 60 years, Harriet Andersson has shown herself in possession of a face, even in perfect stillness, able to inspire the most profound gratitude for the medium of film. Her wide-ranging portrayals of women have helped expand our concept of onscreen femininity. No one could ever forget the feral Monika, Agnes in her death throws, or the silent cruelty of Gloria? The Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award goes to a performer seemingly born for the silver screen.

Stockholm Visionary Award 2010
Gus Van Sant receives Stockholm Visionary Award 2010 with the motivation: With a heart that beats for society's outsiders, Gus Van Sant has journeyed from the streets of Portland, to riots in San Francisco, through empty high-school hallways, and down desolate highways along the way to Idaho. He has shown us an America on the other side of the looking glass —a mirror world, both familiar and startlingly alien, designed by a true visionary filmmaker with the sensibility of the poet.
