This honor is in recognition of Professor Xie Fei's great success and long-term influence in the film A Mongolian Tale, which was filmed in cooperation with Mongolia in 1995. The film was filmed by the Youth Film Studio of BFA in cooperation with Mongolia Film Agency and Hong Kong Huanya Film Company Limited. All the external and internal scenes were filmed in Mongolian scenic spots and studios. In particular, the famous Mongolian artists of the older generation, Dalarsurong and other artists, performed masterly in the film and played an important role in the success of the film. In the past 24 years, this film has not only won many major awards, but has also been shown in film festivals, cinemas and classrooms in nearly 40 countries. Only from 2013 to 2019, the film will be screened continuously in five or six different countries' film festivals and schools every year, and will be welcomed. Especially in 2017, director Xie Fei led the Chinese creative staff to Mongolia again to visit the colleagues and places where they had cooperated and to share the friendship. The film was shown again in Mongolian cinemas and TV stations, causing strong repercussions.
