Prashant Nair`s big win at Stuttgart fest
Mumbai: Filmmakers Prashant Nair and Sujay S. Dahake have won the Directors Vision Award at the 9th edition of Indian Film festival of Stuttgart, Germany for their films ‘Delhi In A Day’ and ‘Shala’ respectively.
The Director`s Vision Award is given to a film that looks at life with an incisive perspective.
While ‘Shala’ is a story of school children coming of age in a repressive small-town society, ‘Delhi In A Day’ is about capital`s urban rich and their servants seen through the eyes of an NRI.
"The entire team is delighted to have received this award as an endorsement of the message and theme of the movie. It was really wonderful to see the film resonate with German audiences in such a positive way. The Indian Film Festival of Stuttgart had a wonderful selection of films, watched by extremely enthusiastic audiences and we`re proud to have been a part of it," said Nair in a statement.
The film is set to release in India Aug 24.
