Sherlock Holmes - Eddie Marsan Picks Up Top Performance Prize At Edinburgh Film Festival

Sherlock Holmes star Eddie Marsan has been honoured with a top prize at the Edinburgh Film Festival in Scotland.

The London-born character actor's role in new movie Still Life has earned him a Best Performance in a British Feature Film award.

Thrilled by the trophy, Marsan says, "Still Life is so special to me because it's such a personal film for its writer and director, Uberto Pasolini. An Italian film, set in London and given its U.K. premiere in Edinburgh - what a wonderful idea."

Joanna Coates' movie Hide & Seek, which received its world premiere at the festival, was named Best British Feature Film and Ice Poison won the award for Best International Film.

The Best Documentary prize was handed to Farida Pacha for My Name Is Salt.
