MUMBAI: Director Tanuja Chandra’s English film Hope and a Little Sugar, a film on the aftermath of 11 September attack in the US, has won the best feature film award at the South Asian Film Festival held recently in New York.
“I am very happy and delighted to learn that my movie was selected as the best feature film award at the South Asian Film Festival. The competition was conducted from 8 October through text SMS by viewers who were present at the film festival and the people of New York, which went on for a week,” says Chandra.
“The movie was emotionally cherished by the people of New York because Hope and a Little Sugar was on the aftermath of 11 September attack in New York and that may be was reason of our film bagging the award. We are now looking forward to the International Film Festival to be held in Goa and few more festivals then we will plan for theatrical release all over the world. I am meeting few artistes for my forthcoming film, which will be announced very soon,” she adds.
