TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - British Columbia director Carl Bessai's small-town drama "Cole" grabbed the best Canadian feature trophy at the Atlantic Film Festival, which wrapped in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Saturday.

The low-budget indie stars Richard de Klerk as a would-be writer romancing a rich city girl, played by Kandyse McClure ("Battlestar Galactica").

Nathan Fielder won the documentary award for his debut effort "Love and Cameras in America," a portrait of the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
