Best of the Fests: AFI Gets Acné

The American Film Institute's AFI Fest 2008 came to a close yesterday, and the big winner was a little coming of age movie about a teen's worst nightmare.

Acné, a Spanish language drama that follows a 13-year-old's quest for his first kiss, won the festival’s grand jury prize. Kassim the Dream, a documentary about Ugandan World Champion Boxer Kassim "The Dream" Ouma, was also named.

Tilda Swinton, the Academy Award winning actress and Derek Jarman muse, was honored with a special tribute at the fest on Friday.
