The newly-launched Gaia International Film Festival of Portugal closed its first annual edition Saturday night (june 22) with the awarding of its non-monetary Golden Prize for Best Film to Tom Tykwer's Heaven.

Guillermo del Toro won the festival's Silver Prize for The Devil's Backbone (El Espinazo Del Diablo) and the Bronze Prize was shared by Ray Lawrence for Lantana and Juan Jose Campanella for The Son Of The Bride (El Hijo De La Novia).

Gaia, which looks to carve a niche as the first stop for international summer releases in Portugal, opened on June 14 with the European pre-premiere of Spider-Man, and closed Saturday with a screening of Ice Age. A retrospective was dedicated to the history of 20th Century Fox.
