Overwhelmed by the recognition, SE Network has taken to social media to pen their appreciation on the win after bracing stiff competition from amazing Tamil short films from all over the world.
The Toronto Tamil International Film Festival (TTFF or TTIFF) is a cutting-edge international film festival that welcomes aspiring and upcoming independent filmmakers to participate. A one-of-a-kind film festival that focuses on providing opportunities for international filmmakers.
The primary objective of the Toronto Tamil Film Festival is to encourage emerging filmmakers, as well as the sharing of knowledge, information, ideas, and culture between Tamils and various diversities and ethnicities around the world, in the framework of their social and cultural ethos.
A total number of 55 Tamil films competed in the highly acclaimed competition, and it’s indeed a fabulous achievement for the team who have dedicated their heart and soul in ensuring the film is one that will be well remembered for a very long time.
Vannam features Rajandran Murugiah and Aditi Manoharan in pivotal roles along with the rest of the film’s supporting casts namely Sivanesh Logeswaran, Prakash Rao, Shangita Namasivayam, Jegan, Viskwak, and Devaki Malayappan.
