    Honoured to be a part of Kolkata International Micro Film Festival. Organizers are at their best. Their communication, hospitality, and level of passion are amazing. Thanks to the Juries for selecting my Film "Togetherness" as the Best animation Film. It will definitely encourage me to produce more films in future.
