Omung Kumar’s 2014 directorial Mary Kom, which was selected for the Stockholm International Film Festival Junior (SIFFJ), has won the Best Film Award and has been honoured with the Bronze Horse Award, the festival’s top honour.

The biopic, based on the life of Olympic medal-winning Indian boxer Mary Kom, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and released on September 5 last year to positive reviews from both critics and audiences.

The jury for the junior section of the festival consisted of children from the age of nine to 17.

Kumar, who directed the Priyanka Chopra-starrer biopic of the legendary Indian boxer M.C Mary Kom, was present at the screening of his film after which children from various age groups asked him questions in an interactive session.

Calling this win a “big”, Omung said the film will also be screened at the Indian Film Festival in Sweden next month.
