The "Number 1" crew had a star-struck moment when critically acclaimed director Ang Lee popped by their post-ceremony dinner to thank everyone for attending the film festival.
Ang Lee, who is recognised as one of the top contemporary film makers in the world, is also the chairman of the Golden Horse Awards.
