Here’s what it said…
‘Congratulation. This is to inform you that the film "Gone fishing'' has received silver prize of the festival. It contains 5 Golden coins plus silver statue of the festival. I will send the prize to the embassy of your country in Iran…
Mahshid Karimi, Artistic Director
WOW! This is the first prize we have won in the Middle East and I feel very proud that our film has been so well received in Iran, a country who is in deadlock with our government, but whose artistic community is clearly open to, and actively celebrating friendship and diversity. Wow! Blown away! Can’t wait to get more details.
Now I just need to get my diplomatic bag ready at the Embassy!
Onwards and upwards!
