Bart Layton’s doc The Imposter (pictured) picked up the Best Documentary prize at the 33rd London Critics’ Circle Film Awards last night (January 20).

The doc beat Searching for Sugar Man, The Queen of Versailles, Nostalgia for the Light and London: The Modern Babylon to take the prize.

The award comes after the film earlier this month picked up two nominations for the 2013 British Academy Film Awards, which take place on February 10. The Imposter also picked up a Cinema Eye prize earlier this month.

Asif Kapadia’s F1 doc Senna triumphed at London Critics’ Circle Film Awards last year, and went on to pick up two BAFTA awards – for best documentary and best editing.
