Producer Jim Hickey was presented with the award in Abu Dhabi by Joseph Fiennes and Casino Royale's Eva Green.

The Middle East International Film Festival is one of the richest in the world, awarding prize money of $1 million. A total of 76 feature films and 34 short films from over 35 countries competed for the awards. Among the stars present at the festival were Jane Fonda, Susan Sarandon, Catherine Deneuve and Ben Kingsley.

Breadmakers has already been programmed by 20 film festivals and won prizes at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the Athens Disability Film Festival.

Jim Hickey said, "This prize is unprecedented for a short film and it will help us all to move forward with our next projects. Robin and I are already working with Yasmin on her next film for which she has been shooting some material in Damascus."
