Shanghai International Film Festival came to a close on Sunday with the Greek film Little England taking out the Golden Goblet Award for best film.

Set in the 1950s on the island of Andros, Little England centres on two sisters bound together by their love for the same man. The Golden Goblet was just one of three awards for the film with director Pantelis Voulgaris awarded best director and Pinelopi Tsilika also taking home the best actress award.

The Jury Grand Prix went to the only Chinese film in competition, Zhang Meng’s Uncle Victory and actor Vithaya Pansringar received the best actor gong for his role in Tom Waller’s The Last Executioner.

Renowned Chinese actress Gong Li headed up the jury panel this year at the 17th edition of the festival.
