Panah Panahi’s Hit the Road has been presented with the Best Film Award in the Official Competition of the 65th BFI London Film Festival. The road movie sees a family of four take their dog on a journey through Iran to the sounds of 1970s Iranian pop. Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska, the Official Competition jury president, said: “The Best Film Award recognises inspiring and distinctive filmmaking that captures the essence of cinema.

We have opted for a film that made us laugh and cry and feel alive.”
