Chinese film Angels Wear White won the Best Film Award late Friday at the 54th International Antalya Film Festival in Turkey's Mediterranean City of Antalya, the first time a Chinese film wins the highest award of this event.

The film, directed by Chinese female director Wen Yan (also known as Vivian Qu), tells a story that happens to two adolescent Chinese girls who are sexual assaulted by a middle-aged man at a hotel and feel helpless in seeking justice.

"The film focuses on a worldwide social problem, and thus eventually calls up common awareness among audiences," Wen told Xinhua after the award ceremony.

Moreover, the Best Actress Award was given to Wen Qi, a 14-year-old Chinese actress who roles a vital hotel waitress in Angels Wear White.

The Best Director Award was given to Iranian director Mohammad Rasoulof for his film A Man of Integrity.

The International Antalya Film Festival, one of the longest-running art events in Turkey, attracts 10 movies from different countries to participate in its competition section this year.
