The golden pen has been awarded an Honourable Mention as the runners up in the Best Short – Documentary Category at the Asians on film festival in west hollywood, california. The first place went to Merde! which was directed by Earl McDaniel III.
The announcement was made barely three days after The Golden Pen was premiered on Friday, April 13, before a packed audience at the ReelWorld Film Festival in Toronto. A full video report of the premiere and an animated Q&A will be on this site shortly.
The tremendous reception at the premiere was way beyond our expectations. We were graced with directors such as Shakun Batra, whose Bollywood movie Ek Main aur Ek Tu, was also premiered at the festival. And now we have been showered with recognition from a well-know West Coast festival that specializes in a certain genre of films. This sort of recognition would have been impossible but for the team involved in filming and putting together The Golden Pen.
