Congrats to all the winners!  This is my first film festival and what a blast! 

Susy thank you for all your hard work and great taste in films.

I will continue to produce work on my iPhone.  Can't stop now.

Thanks

This award and this festival are so, so, so very important for so many reasons. Please forgive the clunkiness of this speech because I'm improvising on the spot. I didn't expect for a second to actually win! Quarantine this year forced us all into a box, and our mobile phones became both the window to the outside world, and the primary way for EVERYONE to broadcast creativity. After all, not all of us got locked in with traditionally "professional" cameras, but we all got locked in with our mobile phones. Making a whole feature in one location with no crew and just a phone seemed ludicrous until I actually started endeavoring to do it. And I quickly learned how much power was in the palm of my hand. Mindblowing. I want to thank Susy for having the foresight over TEN YEARS AGO to predict how important our smartphones would become in broadcasting our individual stories. I want to thank my co-star Eric Radic for not only delivering a powerhouse performance, but also being a support system and a source of endless humor and light through this challenge. I want to thank the judges for this IMMENSE HONOR. It's been a rough year for Asian women. The odds seem stacked against us. I'm going to be drawing from the joy of this win to keep me inspired and to KEEP GOING. <3 And thank you to everyone who watched the film and therefore gave this project meaning. I'm overcome with love. THANK YOU!

@susy

So proud of what you are doing for film.  You are demonstrating how an everyday object if more than business.

I'll be back!

@susy I have definitely been inspired with all the films I saw, so maybe I'll try my hand at actually getting behind the camera next time:-)! Thank you so much again for including our short film. Hope to be here again in the future!
