Marking its sixth year, the festival screened 159 feature films and 85 shorts selected from 4,550 film submissions.
The narrative feature award went to Israeli feature My Father My Lord (Hofshat Kaits), which looks at the price that may be exacted by upholding strict religious tenets. Taxi To The Dark Side - Alex Gibney's hard-hitting look at US torture techniques, which would later go on to scoop an Oscar - won best documentary feature. British filmmaker Paul Taylor, meanwhile, picked up the audience award for We Are Together (Thina Simunya) - about life in an African orphanage which sees the children united by a love of singing.
