NEW YORK, May 10 (UPI) -- "Green Love," an erotic Chinese film about love won the top prize at New York's Tribeca Film Festival.

The movie was named best narrative feature and its director, Liu Fen Dou, won as best new narrative filmmaker, the New York Daily News reported Monday. The nine-day festival featured 250 films from 42 countries.

"I came from Beijing and I hope that when you watch my film it can bring us closer, like I feel closer to this city," Dou said as he accepted his awards from legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese.

The Audience Award was given to "Every Mother's Son," a documentary about three New York mothers whose sons were killed by police officers.

Brazilian star Fernanda Montenegro won as best actress in a narrative feature for her role as a police informant in "The Other Side of the Street."

Ian Hart won best actor in a narrative feature for playing an Irish nationalist who befriends an English journalist while in captivity in Lebanon in "Blind Flight."

Awards were handed out Sunday at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
