    We got the notification through Filmfreeway that we won in a section, so we waited until we got the Mail and the certificate. A couple days later I personally wrote to them asking when we can expect to get the certificate. We haven't heard back until now (April 14, fesival was on Sept. 28th). Very disappointing.

I requested for customized trophy and got it done so professionally and on time. I would like to thank Mr Triptayan Chatterjee, Festival Director wholeheartedly for being so kind and helpful.
