Ten movies including "Born in China," "Wolf Warrior 2" and "Operation Mekong" are honored for their special contributions to the promotion of Chinese cinema at the 4th Silk Road International Film Festival.

Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan's nature documentary "Born in China" won an award for its special contribution to the international promotion of Chinese cinema at the recent 4th Silk Road International Film Festival.

A co-production of SMG Pictures and Disneynature, the film stunned audiences around the world with its heart-warming scenes and stories about animal families in the remote wilderness of China, including giant pandas, golden monkeys and snow leopards.

The film made over 66 million yuan (US$9.9 million) at the Chinese mainland box office in 2016, a record for a Chinese documentary film. It is also among the recommendations of the Ministry of Education for China's primary and middle school students.

In April this year its global release began, so far reaping around US$25 million. It will be screened in more than 100 countries and regions worldwide.
