The Sitges film festival has awarded its Best Film prize to The Fall by Indian-born director Tarsem Singh. This is the story of a stuntman who ends up in hospital, where he recounts a long tale to a young girl.

That wasn't the festival's only winner, as Rec won a total of five awards, including best director for Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza and best actress for Manuela Velasco. That film is about a team of firefighters.

Sam Rockwell took best actor for Joshua.

Inside (A l'interieur) from France took the Citizen Kane Award for best new director - shared by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

Park Chan-wook's I'm A Cyborg, But That's OK won best script.

The jury was comprised of Zoe Bell, Ruggero Deodato, Mark Palansky, Eloy Azorin and Casimiro Torreiro.

The festival's director, Angel Sala, confirmed that 53,000 tickets has been sold, a 20% increase on last year. However, he did comment that many films being screened didn't have distribution in Spain, and were 'having quite a few problems with the market', due to 'sales figures which are not profitable for some distributors.'

Next year's festival is already being dedicated to Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
