Good News! After her web show ‘Delhi Crime’ won the Best Drama Series award at the International Emmy Awards last year, actress Shefali Shah’s directorial debut ‘Someday’ has been selected for the 51st Annual USA Film Festival’s International Short Film and Video Competition.
The short film ‘Someday’ has been shortlisted in the finalist category of the Oscar accredited film festival and will undergo the final round of judging next week.
For the unversed the USA Film Festival is scheduled to take place between April 2 and April 25. The festival recognizes and encourages excellence in film and video arts.
Talking about Someday being selected for the festival, Shefali Said “Someday is my first trial and error with direction. Our labor of love has made it to the final selection of the USA film festival, and I can’t even begin to tell how excited I am. The reason I send it to the festivals across the globe was to see where I stand as a total newcomer in the direction. And this is such a big assurance that I must’ve done something right.”
Someday is a mother-daughter story of those who are together in spirits yet separated by a door. Vidhi is a frontline warrior who comes home to a seven-day quarantine after 15 days on duty, only to discover that her mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s.
In the film the two women talk about the past and the future with no ties to the present. Their togetherness oscillates between what was, what can’t be and what may just be someday.
Meanwhile, Shefali Shah will be next seen in ‘Darlings’ where she will be sharing a screen place with Alia Bhatt and Vijay Varma. She also has Vipul Shah’s ‘Human’, and Netflix’s Delhi Crime 2,’ the second part of Delhi Crime.
