Spanish filmmaker Isaki Lacuesta's "Los pasos dobles" was on Saturday named best film at the San Sebastian festival.

"Los pasos dobles" (The Double Steps) takes its inspiration from the biography of French artist and author Francois Augieras (1925-1971) who painted the walls of a military bunker in the desert and let it sink into the sand.

The jury, chaired by US Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand ("Fargo"), also named Greek-born Filippos Tsitos as best director for his thriller "Adikos kosmos" (Unfair World).

Antonis Kafetzopoulos was given an award for best actor in "Adikos kosmos".

The special jury prize went to French actress and director Julie Delpy for her film "Le Skylab", a tribute to her late mother.
