French star Julie Delpy picked up a top prize for her movie Le Skylab as Spain's San Sebastian Film Festival drew to a close on Saturday (24Sep11).
The actress/filmmaker received the Special Jury Prize for the comedy, inspired by her own childhood, from a committee headed by Fargo star Frances MCDormand.
Accepting her prize, Delpy told the crowd, "The film is about happy moments, so thank you for another happy moment."
Spanish movie Los pasos dobles was honoured with the top award, the Golden Shell, while British actor Dexter Fletcher was also recognised for his directorial debut, crime drama Wild Bill.
