THE 12th Inverness Film Festival audience - which ended on Sunday night - has voted Norwegian film Kon-Tiki the winner in the annual Audience Award.

The award - designed by Hebridean-based desgner Steve Dilworth - will now go to Norwegian film-makers Joachim Renning and Espen Sandberg.

Last year's award went to Iraq for My Sweet Pepperland and it last went to Scandinavia in 2010 when Swedish film The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Next came top with IFF audiences.

Festival director Paul Taylor said: "This year's festival has been a great success. There was a real buzz and atmosphere around Eden Court throughout the five days of the festival.

"The winner Audience Award was Kon-Tiki, closely followed by New Zealand's What We Do In The Shadows and Difret from Ethiopia, showing that the audiences really engaged with films from all around the world.

"The reaction to the films was almost universally positive, my Mystery Movie, La Distancia, seemed to be the most polarising of the films but everyone agreed that it was unforgettable."
