This is a great festival to be associated with."
"Having won the award for best short screenplay, I could not be more proud and deeply gratified by this amazing festival. In a world where the politics of fear seem to be the defining moments in many cultures, diversity and it's many voices is needed, required and this festival is a bench mark for that.
Thank you, sincerely. Of all the awards I have won this is among the most significant to me personally."
