Audiences at the 2006 edition of the New York Asian Film Festival have selected Takashi Yamazaki's "Always" from Japan as the winner of the audience award at the event. The film is described by the festival as a "sprawling drama about the citizens of a beat-down neighborhood in Tokyo during the 1950's boom years sent audiences out into the lobby smiling and crying." The next two top films in audience ballotting were the Korean film, "Welcome to Dongmakol" and "Funky Forest: The First Contact" from Japan." [Eugene Hernandez]
