Out of almost 6,000 submissions and 400 films in competition... 'Diwa' won one of the few handful awards at Hollyshorts this year! Yay, yay, yay!
Especially after seeing all the incredibly films, not just in screening block, but the few dozen shorts we did see in other categories... our 'Best Diversity' award was truly, truly a blessing and an honor.
Filmmaking is oftentimes a bank-account-draining and soul-crushing experience...it's wins like this, and the response of audiences that keep us going.
See you all at the next festival!
