    Thanks for Selection of our Short Film HURRICANE in the festival. Had a lot of expectation for an award but may be others did better.
    Still, I wish Film Festivals do not make various award categories to be applied as it digs a hole in pocket of Indie Film Makers like us. Instead, a genuine festival should charge only under one application for the relevant category of Film (Feature or Short or Documentary) and judge for all the various awards available in the festival for all the category of Films.
