Stanley Ka Dabba wins special award at Giffoni Film Festival

Amole Gupte’s debut film as a director Stanley Ka Dabba impressed the audiences when it released earlier this year. And now, the film has won a special award at the Giffoni Film Festival, one of the largest children’s film fest in Europe.

The award in question ‘United Against Injustice: Depends On Me’ has been given by ActionAid, an organisation whose vision is to have a world without poverty. Speaking about this win Amol says, “The issue of hunger and need for the entire world, including the medium of cinema, especially the so-called commercial one, to respond is very urgent. But sadly the world is not listening hard enough.”

The jury that awarded Gupte found the film a tool to speak out about poverty and the need to go ahead with the struggle against hunger. The festival took place in Giffoni Valle Piana, Italy.
