Got a call on Saturday morning that Kavi had won the award for Best Short Film and the Grand Jury Prize at the USA Film Festival… and could I come to Dallas TOMORROW with a finished copy of the film for the awards screening?!

I didn’t even know that Kavi was in the festival! Apparently it wasn’t… there is a festival section and then a competition section. The cool thing is that this is an Academy-Qualifying festival, so now we can official enter Kavi into competition for the 2010 Oscars under the short film category. Sweet!

More on the festival experience soon…

In any case, I hope that this will some how lead to great opportunities for people to watch Kavi, learn that slavery still exists, and take action to help abolish slavery once and for all!
