PARK CITY, Utah - A Canadian film about a father and daughter has won a prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

Genevieve Dulude-Decelles's "The Cut" claimed the short film jury award for international fiction.

The 15-minute tale follows a father and a daughter's fluctuating relationship during a haircut.

The short film grand jury prize went to "Of God and Dogs" by the Abounaddara Collective of the Syrian Arab Republic while the short film jury award for U.S. fiction went to Janicza Bravo's "Gregory Go Boom," starring Michael Cera of Brampton, Ont., as a paraplegic man who leaves home to be on his own.

Organizers say the awards were presented at a ceremony Tuesday in Park City, Utah. The award recipients will also be honoured at an awards bash Jan. 25.

The festival runs through Jan. 26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

Other short film winners included: Israel's "I Think This Is the Closest to How the Footage Looked" for non-fiction and the U.S.'s "Yearbook" in the animation category.
