Director Park Chan-wook won an honorary award at the Geneva International Film Festival on Tuesday.
The organizers said Park was chosen for the Film and Beyond Award in recognition of his achievements in a wide range of film-related fields.
Park thanked the organizers and said he considers it a "mid-term" assessment of his career, mentioning that the award is usually given to directors at the end of their career.
"I've worked for 26 years and would thank the Geneva International Film Festival if it invites me again in 2045."
Two of his feature films including "The Handmaiden" and three short films are being shown at the festival.
