    I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for selecting and awarding my film in the 5th Edition of your esteemed film festival. This recognition means the world to me, and I am deeply honored to receive such an accolade from your distinguished panel of judges.

    Being recognized for my debut work is both humbling and incredibly motivating. It inspires me to continue pushing the boundaries of storytelling and filmmaking, and to explore new avenues of creativity with each project I undertake. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire organizing committee for their hard work and dedication in putting together such a fantastic event.

    The platform you have provided for emerging filmmakers like myself is invaluable, and I am grateful for the opportunity to showcase my work alongside so many talented individuals. Please convey my appreciation to the judges for their time, expertise, and for believing in the vision I set out to convey through my debut film. I am truly touched by their recognition and support.

    Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for this incredible recognition. I am filled with gratitude and inspired to continue pursuing my passion for filmmaking with even greater determination.

  • My work was not judge fairly. It was just a lot grandstanding. My award winning short doc, On gender discrimination was not in the final. On Woman history month. I strongly feel this highly disrespectful to woman in this country and around the world.
