Paul Hudson from Outsider Pictures accepts the Knight Grand Jury award for A Wolf at the Door

During the 31st edition of the Miami International Film Festival, Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Coimbra's debut feature film, A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da porta), was the big winner, nabbing the prestigious Knight Grand Jury Prize and Best Director awards in the Knight Competition, which features first-time feature filmmakers from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

Recently receiving awards for Best Brazilian Film at Rio de Janeiro Film Festival, and the Horizons Award for Best Film at San Sebastián Film Festival, A Wolf at the Door deals with a complicated love triangle, police intrigue, shocking drama, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, intermingled in this fact-based story of the disappearance of a young girl in suburban Rio.
