Veyilmarangal wins yet another international award!
Acclaimed filmmaker Dr Biju’s new film ‘Veyilmarangal’ (Trees Under the Sun) continues to garner acclaim from various international venues. The film has bagged the award for Best International Feature Film at 3rd Chongqing Pioneer Art Film Festival, China. The director himself shared the happy news through his social media handle.
‘Veyilmarangal’ had its world premiere at the Shanghai International Film Festival. It was the only Indian film in the main competition section. The film was selected for competing for the Golden Goblet Award for Best Feature Film along with 14 others, shortlisted from 3964 submissions from 112 countries. It was also the first Indian film in six years to compete in the festival. The film eventually won the ‘Outstanding Artistic Achievement Award’ and thus became the Indian film to win an award at Shanghai.
Later at the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival, lead actor Indrans was chosen as the Best Actor for his extraordinary performance in the film.
