The prize has received support from Italy’s Ministry of Heritage and Culture.

The Way Station has received various international awards including the Best Story at the 58th Asia Pacific Film Festival held in Taiwan earlier this year and was honored with the Special Jury Prize at the Eurasia International Film Festival 2017.
