Daniel Wolfe's video for Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky won the top music video prize at the 2015 SXSW Film Awards last week. 

Wolfe's harrowing video for the Nutini track about a society enslaved by a tortuous noise – which was conceived and written with his brother Matthew – won the Jury Award for music video at the main film festival awards event at this year's South By South West in Austin, Texas.

It's the latest major award for the promo, which was shot in Ukraine last summer, with photography by Robbie Ryan, following its two awards at the UK Music Video Awards last November (Best Pop Video and Best Cinematography), the Camerimage Film Festival (Best Cinematography), and the Ciclope Festival (Grand Jury Prize) earlier this year.

"South By South West is a pioneering festival, showcasing the most exciting work from some of the best directors," said Daniel Wolfe, who's debut feature Catch Me Daddy, also co-directed with brother Matthew Wolfe, went on cinema release in the UK last month. "My brother and I are very honoured to receive this award, we would like to thank Sally Campbell, Tim Nash, Lee Groombridge, Tash Tan, Robbie Ryan, Alex Hulsey, Robin Brown, Deepa Keshvala, Tom Lindsay, Simon Bourne, Dan Curwin, Chris Parks, Peter Arboine, Darko Skulsky, Tanya Neistova, Anna Buryachkova, Roman Pavlenko, Boris Grishkevych, and especially the wonderful Ukrainian cast." 

The second music video prize at this year's SXSW Film Awards went to directing duo DANIELS for their video for DJ Snake & Lil Jon's Turn Down For What, which received a Special Jury Recognition Honour.
