"Ha Ha Ha", a film by South Korean director Hong Sang-soo, has won the Cannes Film Festival's fringe "Un Certain Regard" category. The Palme d'Or, the top prize in the main competition at Cannes, is due to be handed out on Sunday.

AFP - "Ha Ha Ha," a film by South Korean director Hong Sang-soo, on Saturday won the top prize at the Cannes film festival sidebar competition, Un Certain Regard.
  
The film, which tells the story of a drunken trip down memory lane as a film-maker prepares to leave Korea to live in Canada, is one of three Korean films in the official selection at Cannes this year.


  
Un Certain Regard gave its jury prize to "Octubre," a first feature by Peruvian brothers Daniel and Diego Vega. The movie tells the story of a Lima loan shark who suddenly finds himself saddled with a baby.
  
The best acting prize went to the three actresses who play women who travel to a remote town to do welfare work among the local poor in the Argentinian film "Los Labios," by Ivan Fund and Santiago Loza.
  
The Palme d'Or, the top prize in the main competition at Cannes, was due to be handed out on Sunday to one of the 19 films in the race.
  
Korean director Lee Chang-Dong's "Poetry" and his compatriot Im Sang-soo's "The Housemaid" are both in the running for the Palme.
