Director Abdellatif Kechiche wins award for second time in his career.

Abdellatif Kechiche’s Adèle: Chapter 1 & 2 continued its award winning streak in France on Tuesday, clinching the Louis Delluc Prize for best French film in 2013.

The Delluc prize for best first film went to Hélier Cisterne’s Vandal about a bunch of teenage taggers in the eastern French city of Strasbourg. The picture, sold internationally by Paris-based Films Distribution, was co-written by Suzanne director Katell Quillévéré.

Kechiche’s Palme d’Or-winning tale of lesbian love Adèle: Chapter 1 & 2, also known as Blue is the Warmest Colour, has picked up a slew of awards since premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Producers Wild Bunch did not put it forward for the Oscars but the title is nominated at the Golden Globes in the foreign language category.

It is the second time Kechiche has won the Delluc award, having previously picked up the prize with this 2007 picture [link=tt »
