The Bronze Horse for the best film at the 12th Stockholm International Film Festival 2001 went to Larry Clark's controversial Bully, while the festival's Lifetime Achievement Award went to Jean-Luc Godard for "his indefatigable excursions into new cinematographical landscapes, for his youthful lust for rebellion which has only grown bigger over the years, for his provocative talent of expanding our visions and thereby changing our views on life and on the world and the art of cinema."
