Metruk Wins Indie Fest Award of Merit

I am proud to announce that  Metruk (The Abandoned) has won the prestigious Award of Merit in the short documentary category from The Indie Fest Film Competition in California, United States. As a short documentary Indie winner, Metruk joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award.

Thomas Baker, Ph.D., Chairman of the Indie Fest, remarked, “The Indie is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world. The Indie helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges were exceptionally pleased with the exceptionally high quality of entries. The goal of The Indie is to help winners achieve the recognition they deserve.”

Indie awards go to those filmmakers who produce fresh, standout entertainment, animation and compelling documentaries. The Indie is a showcase for cinematic gems and unique voices.

Thanks again to Umut Can Sevindik and Alternatiffilm for their support.  This award is a great birthday present for me 🙂
