The Benny Chan Muk Sing produced, Adrian Kwan Shun Fai directed, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa starred LITTLE BIG MASTER (NG GOR SIU HAI DIK HAU JEUNG) last year was a critical and commercial hit. Lead actress Yeung Chin Wa two nights ago at the 23rd Beijing College Student Film Festival won the College Student Favorite Actress award. The Guan Hu directed MR. SIX won the committee prize, its star Feng Xiaogang received the Best Actor award.
College students voted for their favorite directors, actors and actresses and the awards went to LEFT EAR's director Alec Su (So Yau Peng), MBA PARTNERS's Li Chen and LITTLE BIG MASTER's Yeung Chin Wa.
Chin Wa said, "I am very pleased to win this award, I want to thanks students who voted for me. The reason that I am pleased is this award is a huge encouragement. This year's film festival theme is courage, pursuing your dream is very courageous. Every film is every actor's dream, for me crossing over to become an actor was very difficult. To receive everyone's recognition gives me a lot of confidence and encouragement. I am the happiest that this year I got this script. I won the Favorite award absolutely not because of my personal performance. I am the most grateful about getting a good script, a good team, a good director and good and experienced co-stars this year. They created the life influences life Yeung Chin Wa. I am also happy that the Mainland students like Hong Kong films."
Chin Wa was also the guest presenter at the film festival closing ceremony and presented Best Actor to MR. SIX's Feng Xiaogang with Yan Danchen. MR. SIX also won the committee prize.
Feng Xiaogang said that the excellent performance of an actor could not be separated from the attentive control of the director. He also said that "When an actor wins an award the director practically wins an award".

TUMOR won the Best Film; Best Director went to MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART's Jia Zhangke. The Chen Sicheng directed DETECTIVE CHINATOWN won Best Screenplay.
