Dear Joseph, thank for the recent letter and the festival award itself.
It was notable as the award is the first from abroad for the "Closest", so I assume it reached hearts of the audience there as well.
Also, for me personally, as a film director it was pleasing to get the award in directing (I basically made that film myself: shot, edited and produced).
The film has by now 5 awards and you're welcome to suggest it to other festivals abroad if you're in position (I don't have that opportunity).
Warm regards and thanks from Ukraine.
