IANS  |  Panaji 

Iranian film "Daughter" on Monday won the coveted Golden Peacock prize at the 47th of here.

"Daughter" directed by Reza Mirkarimi beat 21 other films in the festival's international competition section.

"My final thanks... a tribute goes to my best teacher in cinema Abbas Kirostami (well known Iranian director) who taught us how the meaningful matters and how different things are hidden behind small and simple stories," Mirkarimi said, after receiving the award, which comes with the Golden Peacock statuette and Rs 40 lakh in cash.

The best director award was won by Soner Caner and Baris Kaya -- co-directors of the Turkish film "Rauf". The award comes with a silver peacock statuette and Rs 15 lakh in prize money, which was shared by the director-duo.

The best actor male was won by Iranian actor Farhad Aslani for his role in the film "Daughter" and the best actor female was won by Elina Vasca for her performance in the Latvian film "Mellow Mud". Both awards are accompanied by a silver peacock and Rs 10 lakh each.

The special jury award was won by South Korean director Lee Joon-ik for the film "The Throne". The award comes with a special citation, a silver peacock and a cash prize of Rs 15 lakh.

Pepa San Martin's Spanish film from Argentina/Chile "Rara" won the Centenary award for best debut feature film carrying a silver peacock trophy and cash prize of Rs 10 lakh.

The ICFT-Unesco Gandhi medal, a special award category created at this was awarded to the Turkish film "Cold of Kalandar" (Turkey) directed by Mustafa Kara for his poetic portrayal of rural life in a remote hilly region of Turkey. Seven other films were vying for the award this year.
