Terrence Malick's ''The Tree Of Life'', winner of the FIPRESCI Grand Prix 2011

The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) grants its Grand Prix for Best Film of the year to TERRENCE MALICK'S THE TREE OF LIFE.

The prize is the result of a vote by 205 critics across the world, all members of FIPRESCI on any feature-length film from the previous 12 months. The prize will be presented at the opening gala of San Sebastian Festival's 59th edition on September 16th at the Kursaal Auditorium.

TERRENCE MALICK'S THE TREE OF LIFE will open the Zabaltegi-Pearls section at this year's edition of the San Sebastian Festival, after having carried off the Golden Palm at the Cannes Festival in May this year. Starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, the film is a poetic, personal reflection on the meaning of human life.

Terrence Malick, who bagged the Golden Shell for Best Film with Badlands, thanked all members of FIPRESCI for the recognition: "It's comforting to discover so many generous hearts that encourage myself and all those who work with me to continue forging ahead."

Given that Terrence Malick is unable to attend the opening gala, the prize will be collected by a representative of Tri Pictures, the Spanish distributors of the film.

In previous editions of the Festival, the FIPRESCI Grand Prix has gone to movies directed by some of the biggest names in film worldwide: Pedro Almodóvar, Paul Thomas Anderson, Jafar Panahi, Kim Ki-duk, Aki Kaurismäki, Nuri Bülge Ceylan, Jean-Luc Godard, Cristian Mungiu, Michael Haneke and Roman Polanski.
