SWALLOW, DANIEL ISN'T REAL, and MONUMENT Win Big at Brooklyn Horror

The great Brooklyn Horror Film Festival wound to a resounding close last night with its many accolades being dispered among its impressive film line-up. Best Feature went to Daniel Isn't Real (in the Horror competition) with Adam Egypt Mortimer also winning Best Director, and Monument winning Best Picture, Best Sound Design and Best Ensemble Cast (in the Head Trip section). Swallow received a whopping four awards awards, winning Best Screenplay, Best Production Design, Best Actress, and the Audience Award in the Head Trip section.

Other big winners include Mattie Do's The Long Walk in the Head Trip section, gaining Best Actor for Yannawoutthi 'Siengyan' Chantalungsy and Best Cinematography for Matthew Macar; and Koko-Di Koko-Da won Best Screenplay for Johannes Nyholme and a Special Jury Award in the Horror Section.

And personally, I'll admit I'm thrilled that the brilliant Argentinian thriller Rock, Paper and Scissors won for Best Film within a Film and Best Performance by a Dog (that was actually a guinea pig).

Congratulations to all the winners, listed below.
