Our latest film #AmericanishFilm’s Director Iman Zawahry wins BEST FEATURE DIRECTOR AWARD at LA Femme Film Festival
#FutureisFemale #FemaleFilmmaker

repost @imanzawahry:
I never thought I would ever win a Best Director Award! And it’s even more special coming from #LAFemmeFilmFestival. I worked so hard on this film over the last 8 years, particularly during the edit. I found out about the award while filming in Canada, so it was fitting that our amazing editor @its_jes__ accepted the award for me. It’s just as much hers as it is mine, as she never wavered over the last 3 years of the film. Special thanks to award-winning female @MissEricaEng for catching the 2nd and 3rd videos at the award ceremony. The last video is my reaction while filming with the female lead team in Canada. We all screamed for like 5 minutes, which was such a special moment to share with fellow female filmmakers who support and uplift each other. Thank you, LA Femme! Thank you, @AmericanishFilm team! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along this journey. #StudioAutonomous
