On Saturday evening, the fledgling Brussels International Film Festival (BRIFF) unveiled the winning titles of its second edition, and whilst the Grand Prix of the International Competition might have been clinched by Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai’s So Long My Son, European cinema swiftly ran away with all the other prizes.

bagged itself the International Jury Prize, as well as an award from the Belgium-based, French-language public broadcaster RTBF. The atypical format of the photographer’s first full-length movie, in which Billingham’s parents (who were also the focus of his photographic work and who are played here by Ella Smith and Justin Sallinger) are placed centre stage in a series of sketches, offers a stark yet tender portrayal of working class England in the 1980s.
