    Thank you so much for choosing me as your silver award recipient for Best LGBTQ Short for my film Twin Cities Pride 2020! I was not expecting to win. This is a tremendous honor! Your festival is all positive experiences, and I hope to experience this with you again. Also, you helped my lead actor gain more confidence in his return to acting after a 22 year absence. He requested that I forward his gratitude to you. Thank you again!
