Hong Kong crime film Trivisa – which is banned in mainland China – scooped the Best Film award at the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards, the city’s answer to the Oscars. It took a total of five awards on Sunday night.

The film’s director, Johnnie To Kei-fung, originally produced the film as a training exercise for younger directors without any intention to win prizes.

The film industry has speculated that the ban may be related to the film’s co-director, Jevons Au Man-kit, who was also a co-director of Ten Year which won the best film award last year.
