The closing ceremony of 3rd China Women's Film Festival was held in Beijing on May 29. Filmmakers and guests from the culture industry attended to praise outstanding movies centered on women and addressing female themes.

At the ceremony, three works won awards, including the Iranian movie Oblivion Sea Son; The Premiere, a story between a mother and her daughter that was filmed by Cuba director Ana A. Alpizar; and Leona Goldstein's film God is not Working on Sunday.

Over 100 movies were shown during the festival. Organizers also held a forum for filmmakers to discuss the perspective of producing female-focused movies.

The China Women's Film Festival was established in 2013. It aims at promoting the art of women's film, supporting its producers and encouraging women to find self-identities in gender equality.
