SUPER SIZE ME directed by Morgan Spurlock

Andrew Pulver, Judge of the Guardian New Directors Award and Arts Editor of The Guardian said, "Super Size Me is the latest entry in the roll call of superb American documentaries, joining Fahrenheit 9/11, the Fog of War, Capturing the Friedmans and My Architect as part of the most important cinematic movement of our times. Morgan Spurlock's film is funny, insightful, and provocative, and its director is thoroughly deserving of an award designed to recognise innovative film-making."

Michael Hance, Director of the Saltire Society said "This award was set up to identify and reward excellence in Scottish documentary film-making and we are delighted that more talented new film-makers than ever before have entered this year's competition. Of course this award is only possible because of the generosity of EIFF supporters Baillie Gifford."

Best New British Feature Film
Pawel Pawlikovwski for MY SUMMER OF LOVE

Paul Trijbits, Head of the UK Film Council˜s New Cinema Fund said: "We are delighted for Pawel Pawlikovwski in winning this year's award for My Summer of Love, following his success here in Edinburgh with The Last Resort. The quality and diversity of films selected for this award for Best New British Feature Film show the creativity of filmmakers working in the UK in bringing stories to the screen that are relevant to audiences in the UK and worldwide. This is further underlined by the unprecedented number of nine UK Film Council-backed films that have been selected for the next major world-class film festival in Toronto. At Edinburgh's festival debate on British cinema, industry executives and critics alike agreed that the UK was producing some of the best cinema in the world and therefore this year's award reflects a true celebration of British filmmaking."

Pawel Pawlikowski won the Michael Powell Award in 2000 with The Last Resort
