Bruno Barde, the director of the festival, said: “I trust the public. I think that the more demanding and radical cinema is, the more the public rises to the challenge of watching it. Asian films are already popular worldwide because they are high quality, but it’s true that American cinema is more commercial. The US has exported its culture with its films, its art, and I think that Asia is doing the same.”

Chinese martial arts film “Dragon” won the best action film prize.
