The son of singer David Bowie, Jones is one of the U.K.’s young maverick directing talents. His prize for best new British feature came with a purse of 20,000 pounds ($32,700).

The picture premiered at Sundance last year and stars Sam Rockwell as a man isolated on the moon. It recently opened in limited release at the North American box office through Sony Pictures Classics.
