Jailed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi received a special Jury prize at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday for his film-within-a-film in which he plays the protagonist, "No Bears."

Panahi, who won the top prize Golden Lion in Venice in 2000, was jailed in July along with two other filmmakers during the latest crackdown on Iranian civil society.
