Feng Xiaogang (R) receives two awards for his new film "Back to 1942" at the 7th International Rome Film Festival in Rome, Italy on November 11, 2012.

The Rome Film Festival has wrapped up in Italy. Chinese film "Back to 1942" has picked up two awards, including the A.I.C. Award for Best Cinematography, as well as the Golden Butterfly Award.

American director Larry Clark's small-town drama "Marfa Girl" won the top Golden Marc'Aurelio Award for Best Film.

"Marfa Girl" had drawn mixed responses from critics but made an impression on the jury who picked it ahead of favorite "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" from Roman Coppola which went home empty-handed.

Claudio Giovannesi's small-time crime drama "Ali Has Blue Eyes" won both the jury prize and the award for Best Debut.

However, controversy arose after the Best Director prize went to Paolo Franchi for "And They Call It Summer".

The film had been booed at a screening earlier in the week and when it was announced the female lead Isabella Ferrari had won the Best Actress prize the crowd shouted their disappointment.

Among other main awards, Jeremie Elkaim was given the Best Actor prize for his work in Valerie Donzelli's musical "Hand in the Hand".

American film "The Motel Life" from Gabe and Alan Polsky took home the best screenplay prize as well as the audience choice and another award for editing.
