"The Battleship Island", a historical action film by director Ryoo Seung-wan, won the Òrbita award at Spain's Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival, which ended on Sunday.

Sitges, an international festival specializing in fantasy and horror films, marked its 50th anniversary this year.

The Òrbita award is given by a jury comprising the audiences of selected feature-length films of all nationalities previously unreleased in Spain.

The film competed against Takeshi Kitano's "Outrage Coda" and Taylor Sheridan's "Winder River".

"Battleship Island" depicts the plight of Korean slave laborers on Hashima Island in World War II.

This is Ryoo's third award at the Sitges -- he won the Focus Asia award in 2015 with "Veteran" and the Casa Asia award in 2011 for "The Unjust"
