Bi The Way
Special Jury Mention
KASHISH Mumbai gave my animated short Bi The Way a Special Jury Mention with those words:
For a film that tickles us with its disarmingly self-deprecating humour and gently holding the mirror to show that even those who swear by the seven colours are sometimes stuck in binaries of black and white; for its visualisation, stop motion animation, script, voice, music and direction that only an auteur can lend with such fluidity, the Documentary Jury would like to make a special jury mention to the German/Israeli animated short Bi The Way _ Animation - 2022 , directed by Amir Ovadia Steklov .
Premiere tour in California
During summer 2022, my film Bi The Way premiered at Frameline (San Francisco) and hopped to OUTFEST (West Hollywood LA).
I traveled to those festivals and had unforgettable times and networking.
