The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI, short for Fédération Internationale de la Presse Cinématographique) is an association of national organizations of professional film critics and film journalists from around the world for "the promotion and development of film culture and for the safeguarding of professional interests." It was founded in June 1930 in Brussels, Belgium.[1] At present it has members in more than 50 countries worldwide.

Winners of the award include Pedro Almodóvar, Paul Thomas Anderson, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Jean-Luc Godard, Michael Haneke, Kim Ki-duk, Aki Kaurismäki, Terrence Malick, Cristian Mungiu, Jafar Panahi, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen and Wong Kar-wai.[2]
