  • Francis Billingsley

    As a more than aging American fiction writer; my dreams were fulfilled when AAMCHI MUMBAI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL announced that my TV Pilot script DANCING WITH SPIES was proclaimed winner of its BEST TV PROGRAMME category.
    And how should I describe my experience with AMIFF?
    ‘When I communicated with AMIFF (even a month before the competition ended) from upstate New York to Mumbai, India… they were kind, understanding, accessible, and very informative.
    And how does it feel?
    It is wonderful that AMIFF would embrace my fictional love story (a story mostly set in Havana, Cuba) between my main character a once Russian Agent Olga and her lost soulmate the American CIA Analyst William. I therefore feel that this award is a clear international statement of love, hope and joy for all of us.”
