Director Kriv Stenders’ box office hit Red Dog — which took in more than $21 million domestically last year — scored the top gong at last night’s AACTA Awards (formally known as the AFIs). Taking home the Best Film trophy, the pooch prevented Justin Kurzel‘s devastatingly brilliant Snowtown from a clean sweep. Snowtown won Best Direction (Justin Kurzel), Best Adapted Screenplay (Shaun Grant), Best Lead Actor (Daniel Henshall) and Best Supporting Actress (Louise Harris).
