The 24th Tokyo International Film Festival drew to a close on Sunday at Roppongi Hills in the heart of Tokyo with juries and guests walking down the green carpet. The 128 films from all over the world shown at the festival attracted an audience of over 40,000 over nine days.

The festival opened to great fanfare and represented an opportunity for the Japanese to rally together a half-a-year after the natural disaster that hit the country.

The Festival's top prize, The Sakura Award went to the French film "Untouchable" whose two main actors, Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy also won the Best Actor Award.

Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, member of this year's jury, presented this year's Best Actress Award, which went to Glenn Close for her part in the Irish movie "Albert Nobbs."

The Chinese film "Kora" shared the Best Artistic Contribution award with the American film "Detachment."
