The International Honour for Excellence, the highest award that IBC bestows, is made to an individual or organisation who has made a significant and valuable contribution to the media industry, combining technology and creativity to achieve remarkable feats.
Last year it went to a multi Academy-Award-winning Director who has harnessed technology in the service of story-telling. For his continuing recognition of the technical possibilities of innovation, in the service of great movie-making, the IBC2016 International Honour for Excellence went to Mr Ang Lee.
"IBC has done so much to bring together new technology and old-fashioned creativity. I am delighted to be part of this exciting dialogue, and I am honoured to receive this award." - Ang Lee
