    When a filmmaker has his film screened at a festival, he dreams of a fest that has all the class and glamour of the Oscars. The US Hollywood International Golden Film Awards had all that and more. I was treated as if I were a celebrity and was delightfully surprised to win the Best Picture Award. Many thanks for making a home for my film and fellow filmmakers alike.
