The film The Power of the Dog was named Best International Picture in the 22nd edition of the Vancouver Film Critics Circle Awards. The event took place last night virtually for second year in a row.

The award to Best Screenplay went to Don’t Look Up’s Adam McKay and David Sirota. Flee was deemed the Best Documentary and The Worst Person in the World, Best Foreign Language Film.
