The Power Of The Dog has enjoyed remarkable success at this year's OFCS Awards, winning in a total of nine categories including Best Picture, Best Director and three of the acting categories. Denis Villeneuve's Dune, meanwhile, picked up a series of technical awards.

"The selection of winners this year shows that even during a difficult period around the world, film lovers continue to look for good stories, be it in the cinema or at home," said Richard Gray of the organisation's governing committee. "We hope that people see themselves reflected in this list – or even discover something new in the process."
