Control, the biopic about late Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, has scooped a major honour at the Baftas.
The film also won five prizes at the British Independent Film Awards
Screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh, from Prestwich, won the award for Special Achievement by a British Talent.
The black-and-white film, which was shot for just £3m, follows Curtis's rise to fame with Joy Division until his suicide in 1980, aged 23.
Greenhalgh dedicated his prize to the late Factory Records boss Anthony Wilson who died last year.
In November the film scooped five prizes at the British Independent Film Awards, including best film.
