Selected by The London Film Academy to be a part of a special showcase of films, Rani has proved once again that if the content is well made there is no stopping it from progressing ahead.

Produced by Rizvilia Productions and Gray Scale, 'Rani' has been written and directed by Hammad Rizvi, who also won the NBC Universal Short Film Award in Los Angeles last year for the best outstanding writer.

With Rani being shown at Cannes too we at the HIP would once again like to congratulate everyone associated with the film and hope that their short film even makes France fall in love with it.
