“Allah is Great” wins Student Jury’s short film award at Krakow
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 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.
