‘Tyrannosaur,’ ‘Guard’ top at Dinard

Pics win two prizes each at French fest

Paddy Considine’s directing debut, “Tyrannosaur,” and John Michael McDonagh’s “The Guard” won two prizes apiece at the 22nd Dinard British Film Festival, France’s leading showcase for U.K. cinema, on Saturday.

“Tyrannosaur” picked up the Golden Hitchcock award for best film and the Allianz award for screenplay.

“The Guard” took the Kodak Award for cinematography and the Prix Public, voted by the audience.

The Golden Hitchcock provides financial help to the French distributor and the filmmaker, along with a promotional campaign on the Cine Plus channels at the time of the film’s theatrical release.

This year’s Dinard fest opened Oct. 6 with David Mackenzie’s “Perfect Sense” and closed Saturday with Sue Bourne’s “Jig.”

The jury was chaired by French actress Nathalie Baye.

Kristof Bilsen won the short-film award for his doc “White Elephant.” The prize is chosen from a selection of shorts from the U.K.’s National Film & TV School and its French equivalent, Femis.
