The recently wrapped Brussels Film Festival in Belgium has announced its jury award winners, headlined by Icelandic film "Of Horses and Men" taking home Best Film. The jury that selected the winning features was made up of industry stars with actors Hande Kodja, Anita Kravos, Olivier Rabourdin, Fabrizio Rongione and singer/songwriter Raphaël.

Directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, "Of Horses and Men" tells six interwoven fables about rural life in Iceland. It was submitted for Foreign Language Oscar consideration, but was unselected. 

Other awards distributed included the Best First Feature title, which went to Swede Anna Odell for "The Reunion," an imagined autobiography focusing on what could have happened if fine-artist Odell had gone to her class reunion, which she was not invited to in real life.

The 13th Brussels Film Festival will take place from the 5th to the 13th of June 2015 in Flagey.
