Seoul - YONHAP

Tokyo Waka: A City Poem\" by John Haptas and Kristine Samuelson of the United States won the Best Feature Film Award of this year\'s Green Film Festival in Seoul (GFFIS), including prize money of 10 million won (US$8,668), organizers said Tuesday.

Peled of the United States jointly won the Jury Award and 3 million won each while the Audience Award and its 1 million won prize went to \"Semper Fi: Always Faithful\" by France\'s Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon. A total 829 feature and short films from 64 different countries around the world were submitted for the competition held as part of the GFFIS. Meanwhile, \"Jam Docu Gangjeng\" by Hong Hyung-sook and seven other Korean directors was selected as the best Korean film and received a prize of 5 million won. \"White Pig\" by Yang Kyug-mo was the second best Korean film and won a prize of 3 million won and \"Noodle Fish\" by Kim Jin-man got the audience award and 2 million won.
