For most Chinese viewers, Indian director Alka Raghuram's Burqa Boxers led them to a lesser known world. Centering on a group of young Muslim women in a tiny club in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata, the film displays their striving for a better life by learning boxing from Razia Shabnam, one of the first Indian female boxing coaches.

For Jin, the director of Mama, his film focuses on the universal topic of how to care for people with mental illnesses.

Another Chinese winner Du Haibin hopes his documentary A Young Patriot acts as a window to the many changes in China.

Following a 19-year-old young man's journey from Pingyao, Shanxi province, to his college life in Chengdu, Sichuan province, Du says he wants to discuss the relationship between individuals and country.
