SEOUL -- Kim Da-mi, a rookie who played the main role in South Korean mystery action film "The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion", was given the Best Actress award in the Cheval Noir Competition, the main award section, at a prominent international genre film festival in Canada.

"Newcomer Kim Da-mi delivers an immaculate, layered performance, displaying intricacy and range in realms both physical and emotional," festival organizers said in a statement on Wednesday. Juries were quoted as saying Kim's portrayal of her character in the movie "marks the introduction of a kick-ass new heroine,"
