Hunger won the Diesel Discovery Award at TIFF 08!

Steve McQueen and Michael's fine film won yet another accolade announced today as the Toronto International Film Festival 2008 closed this Saturday afternoon!

The Diesel Discovery award goes to Steve McQueen's Hunger. The film follows Bobby Sands and the other political inmates of Northern Ireland’s Maze Prison in 1981 as they seek to gain special category status for republican prisoners. The Festival press corps, which consists of 1000 international media, voted on the Diesel Discovery Award. The award offers a $10,000 cash prize and a custom award sponsored by DIESEL Canada.

Congratulations to Steve!

This is such great news. I'm really happy that it came away with an award. Here's hoping the awards don't stop.
