The young Sitthiphon Disamoe also took best actor for "The Rocket." (Read our TOH! review.)

Veerle Baetens won best actress for Belgian filmmaker Felix van Groeningen's crisis-of-faith love story "The Broken Circle Breakdown." The Europa Cinemas Label Award-winner also won best screenplay.

In the documentary category, Dan Krauss' film on the Afghanistan War, "The Kill Team," took best documentary feature. "Oxyana," Sean Dunne's portrait of a drug-addled mining town in West Virginia, received a special jury mention. (TOH! review and interview with Dunne here.) Jurors were Joe Berlinger, Sandi DuBowski, Whoopi Goldberg, Mira Sorvino, and Evan Rachel Wood.

Vice Films' "Lil Bub & Friendz" -- Andy Capper and Juliette Eisner's documentary about a very famous internet meme cat -- won the best feature film award at the Tribeca Online Film Festival. (Read Indiewire's review here and an interview with the filmmakers.)
