Santosh Sivan sweeps The Olympia International Film Festival

8 December 2008 5:59 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Sunday at midnight, at the 10th Olympia International Film Festival For Children Santosh Sivan's much-acclaimed Hindi film Tahaan, about the relationship between a little boy and his pet donkey, walked away with several major awards including the topmost awards for Best Feature Film, the Cifej (Centre International du Film pour Les Enfant Et La Jeunesse) award and the Unicef award for Best film. "That covers the entire major awards in the films category," said an excited Sivan, minutes after the Olympia awards concluded in Greece. Sadly, little Purav Bhandare who plays the main part in Tahaan, couldn't be in Greece for the awards because of school and also the Festival's apparent inability to fund Purav's flight to the Festival. "What makes these awards special is the fact that every category has a separate set of jury members, so it was basically three different set of jury members giving the three awards to Tahaan. »
