Short Film – Actor – Soundtrack
As far as I know, the Druk International Film Festival is the only film festival from the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. That and their dragon logo (Ed loves dragons) imbues them with a little more sentimental interest in our minds. They also gave my first short film musical Edgar Allan Poe adaptation “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” an Audience Choice Award for short film two years ago, adding to the sentimental value.
This time around the Druk International Film Festival chose to give Tell-Tale’s follow up “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” three awards, for short film, actor, and soundtrack.
At one point Bhutan was declared the happiest country on Earth. It certainly has brought me joy.
