Finding Farideh at MENA Film Festival 2020

Last week Finding Farideh received the MENA Peace & Justice Award at MENA Film Festival 2020 in the Hague, the Netherlands…

The very first time that Finding Farideh is screening in the Netherlands at a (online) film festival and receives an award. To me this is huge. Being Dutch. It is very personal. It is a feeling of acceptance.

So when I heard the news last week Saturday I cried a few times (no surprise there haha) as it so touches my entire heart and being, it is a profound feeling.

MENA Peace & Justice Award… let that sink in.. right. During these times.. peace and justice… two words.. two most important words in this world.. the meaning.. wow wow just WOW!

Super proud of our entire team of Finding Farideh in Iran and the Netherlands.
I feel grateful and blessed with this honor.

Thank you MENA Film Festival, Mohammad Al Amin and his team, the online viewers and the jury! Thank you Laak Theater and Den Haag.

Kheili mamnoon.
Dank je wel uit de diepte van mijn hart.

With love,
