My Movie ‘DRY’ wins Best Protagonist Award at the Bentonville Film Festival, USA!

Hi SL Fabz!

I’m so excited to tell you that my new film “DRY” won an award at the Geena Davis and ARC Entertainment’s inaugural Bentonville Film Festival (BFF) in Arkansas, U.S. for “Best Protagonist”. Yay!!!

This came as a complete surprise. I am excited and honored that the Bentonville Film Festival picked my film for a screening, let alone an award. I am looking forward to this film touching the hearts of many more and helping people take action to save the child bride.

I am also hopeful that there will be more awards to come.

The Bentonville Film Festival (BFF) founded by Academy Award Winner Geena Davis and Trevor Drinkwater, was a star-studded event. Here's Geena Davis at the event.
