Among the seven eligible films the TFO Audience Award was awarded to JOURNEY THROUGH CHINA directed by Zoltan Mayer. CINEMANIA attendees have chosen this film as their favorite. The film was premiered in North American by CINEMANIA. Talented Belgian actress Yolande Moreau plays the lead role. She turned in a highly realistic performance of a mother who goes to China to recover the body of her son, who died in a car accident. Immersed in a culture that is totally foreign to him, she suddenly realizes that this journey is being taken in the footsteps of her son and it triggers a search for self rejuvenating despite all the grief she is feeling.
