Ang Lee to receive IHFE award at IBC

Published: WORLD

WORLD: Director Ang Lee is to be given the International Honour for Excellence (IHFE) at the IBC Awards Ceremony on 11th September 2016. The award is the highest honour that IBC bestows and serves as recognition of Mr Lee's use of technology in creating the visual imagery of his films. Previous winners include James Cameron, Sir Peter Jackson and Sir David Attenborough. Mr Lee is also set to present a keynote address at the company’s conference, where illustrations from his latest works will be included.

Born in Taiwan, Mr Lee studied theatre at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before moving on to study film at the NYU Tisch School of Arts. He boasts two previous Oscars for Best Director and two additional nominations, with his film Life of Pi being the first 3D movie to win the award.

‘The International Honour for Excellence goes to an individual who has made a significant and valuable contribution to our industry, combining technology and creativity to achieve remarkable ends,’ stated Michael Crimp, CEO of IBC. ‘It is hugely appropriate we give this award to Ang Lee, a director who has harnessed technology in the service of story-telling.’

‘In the past few years, I have come strongly to believe that new technology will upgrade film in terms of story-telling,’ echoed Mr Lee. ‘I made Life of Pi in 3D not just to immerse the audience, but as a way of adding depth to the characters and the ideas which move them. In my upcoming film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the use of high frame rate and high dynamic range will provide, I hope, a unique opportunity to feel the realities of war and peace through the protagonist’s eyes.

‘IBC has done so much to bring together new technology and old-fashioned creativity,’ he continued. ‘I am delighted to be part of this exciting dialogue and I am honoured to receive this award. Thank you.’
