The 15th Tribeca Film Festival announced its winners today, with the top prize in the U.S. narrative competition going to former Daily Show correspondent Demetri Martin’s rueful comedy Dean, staring himself and Kevin Kline as a son and father mourning a family loss.

The U.S. narrative jury (which included Tangerine actress Mya Taylor and EW’s own film critic Chris Nashawaty) also gave awards to actress Mackenzie Davis (The Martian) in the tight thriller Always Shine, and actor Dominic Rains, who plays an Afghan journalist working in Northern California in The Fixer.
