DEAUVILLE, France, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- The domestic terrorism thriller "Night Moves" was awarded the Grand Prix award at the 39th American Film Festival Saturday night in Deauville, France.

"Night Moves" director Kelly Reichardt, unable to attend the festival, gave her acceptance speech via Skype from her home in New York, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Two Prix du Jury awards were handed out -- one to "All is Lost" from J.C. Chandor, and the other "Stand Clear of the Closing Doors" from Sam Fleschner.

Ryan Coogler's "Fruitvale Station" took home the audience award and the Cartier Revelation Prize given to a first film, while Chris Eska's "The Retrival" earned the International Critics Prize and Richard Ford won the Lucien Barriere Literary Prize for "Canada," which had been presented Wednesday, the Reporter said.
