38th Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinema Winners


The Greek film Dogtooth by director Yorgos Lanthimos won the $15,000 Louve D’Or prize at the 38th Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinema at the weekend. The seriously twisted black comedy stunned audiences world wide starting at Cannes where it picked up the Prix Un Certain Regard.
