Kahanikar -The Storyteller wins in New York!

Kahanikar - The Storyteller was awarded the Jury prize for Best Animated Short and the Parents award at the wonderful New York International Children's Film Festival which came to a close on Sunday, March 25th after a month full of awesome screenings, workshops and festivities! :)

The award was presented by jury member John Canemaker who told me that he "loved the film and thought it was beautiful" - so honoured and humbled to meet him in person. Other jury members include Susan Sarandon, Michel Ocelot, Gus Van Sant and Uma Thurman - can't believe they've actually watched the film! :D

A big congrats again to my talented team and thanks to everyone at NYICFF for organising such a great festival! For more details about the festival and other winners, please click here.
