Receiving the Golden Bear for lifetime achievement at the festival, Spielberg reiterated he had no plans to stop making films: “I also feel a little alarmed to be told I’ve lived a lifetime because I’m not finished, I want to keep working. I want to keep learning and discovering and scaring the s*** out of myself, and sometimes the s*** out of you."

He added: “I gotta get back to some of those earlier scarier movies, but that’s another story for later on. As long as there’s joy in it for me, and as long as my audience can find joy and other human values in my films, I’m reluctant to ever say that’s a wrap.”

Spielberg also noted that his own father lived until he was 103 so there was a good chance he was going to be able to make quite a few more films.

Spielberg is the most commercially successful and famous film director of all time, responsible for classics such as Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.
