LONDON -- Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe's Brothers of the Head emerged victorious at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival, taking the Michael Powell Award for best new British feature, organizers said as the event's 60th edition drew to a close over the weekend. Brothers marks the first feature from the duo and details the story of conjoined twins Tom and Barry Howe who are plucked from obscurity to become a big part of the English punk rock scene. Named in honor of the British filmmaker, the Powell award is judged by an international jury -- which this year included veteran actor John Hurt and directors' Lone Schefig and Michael Caton-Jones -- and aims to celebrate imagination and creativity in British filmmaking. Previous winners include My Summer of Love and Young Adam.
