Director Hiroyuki Nakano ("Red Shadow," "Stereo Future,"
"Samurai Fiction") has won the "OFAJ (Very) Young Critic
Award" in the short film category of International
Critics' Week for his film 14-minute 57-second film

The Yahoo! article mentions Nakano's own blog, where he
celebrated his victory. Here's the link:

There are upcoming screenings in Mexico, Corsica, Paris

I guess in the scope of Cannes, it's not a very big prize,
but as Japanese film didn't have much of a presence on the
Croisette this year outside of the market, it's good news.

Corrections or additions welcome.
