    Dear CTFF

    Thank you so much for awarding “If I were a tree” Best College Short Film. I am thrilled and honored.

    I so very much wanted to attend the Connecticut Film Festival in person but the weeks leading up to my graduation next week (filming my thesis short) have been intense.

    Best wishes

    Director, “If I were a tree”
