UK director Rufus Norris’ feature debut "Broken" starring Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear has won Odessa International Film Festival’s (OIFF) Grand Prix, the Golden Duke statuette and $15,000 in prize money.
The prize was handed out at a glittering awards ceremony on Saturday evening (21) in the Black Sea port’s historical Opera Theatre before the closing film of "The Angel’s Share" by Ken Loach.
The Grand Prix was awarded as a result of voting by the festival’s audience, which reached a total of 100,000 admissions this year according to OIFF’s president Viktoriya Tihipko.
