Ashim Ahluwalia’s 2012 Cannes entry “Miss Lovely” (pictured above) took the top jury prize at the Indian Film Festival Los Angeles on Sunday.

The feature audience award went to Nitin Kakkar’s “Filmistan.”

The jury and audience awards agreed on the doc and short honors with Sushrut Jain’s  “Beyond all Boundaries” winning for the former and Meghna Gupta’s “Unravel” the latter.

The 11th edition of the six-day fest, which kicked off with Anurag Kashyap’s “Gangs of Wasseypur, Part 1,” concluded with Deepa Mehta’s “Midnight’s Children.”

This year the festival showcased more than 35 features, documentaries and shorts from Indian filmmakers all over the globe at ArcLight Hollywood.
