The 3rd Beijing International Film Festival last night held its closing ceremony and the Tiantan Award presentation. The event even changed the traditional red carpet blue to remember the earthquake victims. The Feng Xiaogang directed Mainland film 1942 won Best Picture and Best Visual Effects. Best Actress was Mainland star Yan Bingyan of FENG SHUI. When she accepted she said that she felt a little luckier than others to be able to win and hoped to bring this luck to the Ya'an earthquake victims for them to escape danger soon.

Yesterday guests included Keanu Reeves, Yuen Woo Ping, Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun), Jackie Chan, Mr and Mrs Chen Kaige, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and others. Chow Kit Lun even performed NUNCHUKUS on the stage as a salute to Bruce Lee. When Chow Kit Lun and Jackie Chan presented an award, he even said that he only became a director because he wanted to control others. Jackie Chan joked that because he was afraid Chow Kit Lun would steal the spotlight he did not invite him to make a movie. However after seeing the Chow Kit Lun directed THE ROOFTOP trailer he felt that he finally found a successor.
