The Florida Project | Official Trailer HD (A24)

The Florida Project, a story about a mother and daughter living out a precarious existence in a motel on the outskirts of Disney World, took the top prize at the sixth edition of Mexico's Los Cabos Film Festival.

Anchored by stellar performances from child actors Brooklynn Prince and Valeria Cotto, and Willem Dafoe as a motel manager, Florida Project has yet to win a top-tier festival honor but is generating awards chatter.

The best Mexican film award and the FIPRESCI international critics prize went to Gabriel Marino's black-and-white drama Ayer Maravilla Fui (Yesterday Wonder I Was), the writer-director's sophomore feature loosely inspired by Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Humberto Hinojosa's road-trip movie Camino a Marte (Road to Mars) walked away with an audience award.

At Saturday night's closing ceremony in the resort town of Cabo San Lucas, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman was honored with a lifetime achievement award. The fest also paid tribute to writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) and screened his latest picture, First Reformed.

The four-day event closed with Venice screenplay winner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, starring Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson.
