Germany's FantasyFilmFest started out 20 years ago as a one-off presentation of science fiction and horror films in Hamburg.

In the end it was a U.S. film that garnered the prize: Rian Johnson's film noir murder mystery "Brick," a high school mystery starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Bonnie J. Gordon reports.
