HANK AND ASHA directed by James E. Duff won the Best Narrative Feature Film Award, and ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH  directed by Pratibha Parmar won the Best Feature Documentary Film Award at the third annual Napa Valley Film Festival. In the romantic comedy Hank And Asha, winner of the Audience Award at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival, an Indian woman studying in Prague and a lonely New Yorker begin an unconventional correspondence through video letters – two strangers searching for human connection in a hyper-connected world. When their relationship deepens, they must decide whether or not to meet face to face. Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a feature documentary film which tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century.
