The TIFF site already list the awards given out today. It usually seems 
that the TIFF jury will hand out at least one consolation award to a 
Japanese film in the Competition, but this was not the case this year. 
The only Japanese film to win any Japanese award was Hiroki Ryuichi's M 
in the Japanese Eyes section, which earned a special award for its 
actor, Kora Kengo. What won the film prize for Japanese Eyes was in 
fact a documentary made by Linda Hattendorf, The Cats of Mirikitani. It 
might not be a pure Japanese film, but my congratulations go out to 
Yoshikawa Masa, the producer of that film who has helped out at a 
number of Kinema Club events.
