Sweet Country,” a Western set in the Australian Outback, was named best film at the annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards on Thursday.

The film, which won the Golden Lion at the Venice festival earlier this year, is the second feature by cinematographer-turned-director Warwick Thornton. His first film, “Samson and Delilah,” won the APSA best picture award in 2009, making Thornton the only two-time APSA winner.

The APSA awards were in their 11th iteration. They were presented Thursday evening at a ceremony in Brisbane, Australia.
