  • Thank you Global Short for all you have done for Mambo Man Film and my team. As the script writer, music supervisor and director of Mambo |Man, I would like to thank you your amazing festival for awarding “mambo Man". We are thrilled and appreciate your consideration which at the age of 70 and 60 ( joined directors ) gives me inspiration to start on my second film!
    your efficiency, communication and professionalism is admirable.
    Thanks to all of you. Keep up your amazing work as this world without arts and culture won't be a world worth living in!
