Fireball wins bronze for 'Most Energetic' at Fantasia

The Fantasia Film Festival wrapped up on July 29, and the jury and audience prizes have been listed, with Thanakorn Pongsuwan's Fireball winning a bronze for the Guru Prize for the Most Energetic Film of the Festival.

The Muay Thai-basketball action drama was tied for the honor with Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl. The top "energetic" prize went to Takeshi Miike's Yatterman with Wilson Yip's and Donnie Yen's hard-hitting biographical drama Ip Man take the silver.

The festival website has the full list of awards.

Fireball was playing alongside two other Thai films, Nonzee Nimibutr's historical fantasy Queens of Langkasuka and the kiddie actioner Power Kids.

Fireball next heads to Austin's Fantastic Festival from September 24 to October 1.
