Stockholm Festival Favors ‘Lore’

The 23rd Stockholm International Film Festival gave its top prize, the Bronze Horse, to Cate Shortland’s coming of age story Lore. The German-Australian production is Australia’s entry for the foreign language Oscar. The film also took awards for best actress (Saskia Rosendahl), cinematography (Adam Arkapaw) and music (Max Richter). Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts Of The Southern Wild added to its festival haul with the best first film award and Andrew Dominik took the screenplay prize for Brad Pitt-starrer Killing Them Soflty. Tim Roth was named best actor for Rufus Norris’ Broken and a special mention was noted for that film’s Eloise Laurence.
