CANNES — Homing in on three films which have played to often upbeat reactions at Cannes, the FIPRESCI Intl. Federation of Film Critics announced awards Saturday for “Delta,” “Hunger” and “Eldorado.”

FIPRESCI plaudits go to one outstanding film in Cannes Competition, Un Certain Regard and either Directors’ Fortnight or Critics’ Week.

Hungarian helmer Kornel Mundruczo’s fourth feature, Competition contender “Delta” portrays a finally incestuous siblings relationship played out to tragedy in the wilds of a river delta.

A buzz title even before it was officially selected to open Un Certain Regard, Brit rookie Steve McQueen’s “Hunger,” about a 1981 IRA hunger strike, was one of a bevy of titles acquired by IFC for the U.S.

An off-beat road movie through Belgium, Belgian Bouli Lanner’s “Eldorado” already nabbed two sponsors’ prizes in Cannes Directors’ Fortnight- the French government’s Regards Jeunes and Europa Cinemas awards.
