The 23rd Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) handed out its 2015 awards at a gala in East Hampton this morning. Grimur Hákonarson’s Cannes sensation “Rams” was awarded the HIFF Award for Best Narrative Feature, presented by The Wall Street Journal. The movie was the Cannes Un Certain Regard prize winner and follows two estranged brothers who own neighboring sheep farms.

The HIFF Award for Best Documentary Feature went to David Shapiro’s “Missing People,” which chronicles an enigmatic young woman’s investigation into the long unsolved murder of her brother. “Over” and “Last Day of Freedom” took home the awards for Best Narrative Short Film and Best Documentary Short Film, respectively.

“Our aspiration for the festival has always been to highlight the importance of diversity in film and support emerging talent in the industry,” said Artistic Director David Nugent. “We are incredibly proud of this year’s lineup and having had achieved these goals once again.”
