"There is a great divide between what motivates people to make films in the States and to compare it to what motivates people to make films here, and I kinda prefer it here," she said.
"If you're not scared of something it's not worth it. It takes a pretty unique American filmmaker to do something and to do it scared and to do it anyway, and here that's what it's really about and what film lives and breathes here," she said.
She hinted at another project with Sils Maria director Olivier Assayas, saying: "This is where I feel and I can do my best and be happiest, so it's huge," Stewart said of the award. She also credited her winning performance to co-star and best actress nominee Julliette Binoche. "I'm standing in front of a room where I don't have to explain the power of Juliette. Everything in the movie is a reflection of her."
