Norway’s film industry held its annual, local version of the Oscars over the weekend, and a film about a scenic if wild car race through the country won the most prizes.

The film, called Børning, walked off with four so-called “Amanda” awards, for Best Norwegian Film, the People’s Choice and Best Sound Design, while actor Henrik Mestad won an Amanda for best supporting actor.

The Amanda awards are presented when the film industry gathers in the west coast town of Haugesund for its annual film festival. Its honorary prize this year went to director Vibeke Løkkeberg, while Ine Marie Wilmann won the best actress prize for her role in De nærmeste and Bjørn Sundquist won for his role in Her er Harold.
