A Message from Rituparna Das Datta:

"I am very glad to inform you that my thesis film 'Canvas' [which was] made with the scholarship I received from BAFTA New York, received a nomination for various categories from five different festivals. It will premiere in India at the Kolkata International Film Festival. 

I consider myself very fortunate [to have] received this scholarship from BAFTA New York. Recognition from a reputed platform like BAFTA means a lot to me. I hope I will be able to do the justice to that."
