Two films about sexual misconduct won jury awards at this year’s Hamptons International Film Festival, which ended Monday.

“Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes,” about the late network mogul ousted from Fox News after a string of sexual harassment allegations, won best documentary feature, while “All Good,” a German film about a woman trying to tamp down memories of a nonconsensual sexual encounter, won best narrative feature.

“Border,” a Swedish fantasy-horror film about a customs agent with a strange gift for sniffing out contraband, won a special jury prize for acting thanks to its leads, Eva Melander and Eero Milonoff. “Only the Wind is Listening,” a Montauk-based short film directed by Emily Anderson, was awarded the $3,000 Suffolk County Next Exposure Grant, which goes to films that complete 50 percent of principal photography in the county.

The festival’s audience awards are expected to be announced Tuesday.
