“Control” and “Together” Win Top Prizes in Edinburgh

"Control" and "Together" Win Top Prizes in Edinburgh

Anton Corbijn‘s “Control” won the Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in Scotland (and actor Sam Riley won an award for best performance in a British film), while Paul Taylor‘s documentary “We Are Together” won the audience award at the 2007 festival. The prize for best documentary went to Jennifer Venditti‘s “Billy the Kid,” and Pernille Rose Gronkjaer‘s “The Monastery: Mr Vig and the Nun” was singled out with a special commendation after jurors had trouble picking a single winner in the category. Other prize winners include Lucia Puenzo winning the new directors award for “XXY.” Short film winners include James Griffiths‘ “The One and Only Herb McGwyer Plays Wallis Island” (best British short), Simon Ellis‘ “Soft” (short film Prix UIP), Yasmin Fedda‘s “Breadmakers” (short Scottish doc prize), and “Over the Hill” (new British animation award).
