“Allah is Great” by Andrea Iannetta

The Student Jury award for Short Film Competition at the Krakow Film Festival went to Indian film Allah is Great by Andrea Ianetta, an Italian student of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).

The Jury awarded the film for “the precision of narration and reminding us that it’s not always worth to be on time.”

The film revolves around Frank Asmas, a Danish engineer who meets Salim, a taxi driver, when he is on his way out of a remote Indian village to Nairobi. Coming from different worlds, their journey together results in mayhem.

The film won a Special Mention at the 60th National Film awards and competed at the Gulf Film Festival earlier this year.

Indian documentary filmmaker Sourav Sarangi was on the International Short Film Competition Jury of Krakow.

Krakow Film Festival is one of the oldest film events dedicated to documentary, animated and short fiction films in Europe. The 53rd edition of the festival concluded on June 2.
