EIFF 2007 award winners

EIFF.gifThe Edinburgh International Film Festival for 2007 is over, and the winners of all the awards have been announced.

It's been a hectic two weeks of trying to see far too many movies than can possibly be seen in that time while still managing to write them up, as of now I'm about ten behind! This was all at the same time as all the other press events, a pretty strict day schedule which didn't see evening press showings, and the public screenings with their Q&A's. In fact this year I didn't get to see any of the public screenings, something that meant I missed the surprise showing of The Kingdom.

If you want to read more about the films I've seen then have a look at the final tally of films or head over to the Filmstalker EIFF 2007 page or the Filmstalker Festivals page for more on the EIFF or other Festivals.

You can see the list of winners over the page with the film Control, about the life of Ian Curtis, taking two awards, and I'm so glad the audience award didn't go to a Hollywood film!
