IFFM Excellence in Cinema- Shah Rukh Khan
On winning the IFFM Excellence In Cinema award, Shah Rukh Khan gave a heartfelt speech and said, "Thank you all of you in Melbourne. It’s an honour and privilege for me. Awards are odd because to me an art form is judged for its quality feels counter-intuitive. Art is an expression and cinema is the ability to create emotions and share experiences through stories. To be an actor is to live to know that each one is a mere illusion. When you are making a movie you can change a lot by changing the angle of the light and it strikes you that life is a lot like that as well. It’s the simple things that can alter your journey and pondering makes your story worth telling. I shot a film here 12 years ago and it was a straightforward film about a man who has lost hope in life picks on a team of girls and then they go on to win a world championship. This city had the simplicity I had seen nowhere else. When you get older like me, you realise things. I realised that the film changed my life. It’s not the awards you get, it’s just the part of creating a process that is an exhilarating experience for an artist."
Congratulations to all winners!
