BETTER DAYS Wins 8 Hong Kong Film Awards

Exposing "the dark world of bullying and societal pressures of achievement facing today's youth," Derek Kwok-Cheung Tsang's Better Days won eight Hong Kong Film Awards, per Variety.

The romantic crime drama snagged prizes that included best film, best director, best screenplay and best actress. The drama Suk Suk won awards for best actor and best supporting actress during a presentation that was announced via a live-streaming event.

Ip Man 4: The Finale was also recognized with multiple awards: best film editing, best sound design, and best action choreography -- by the great Yuen Wo-ping.
