DLE Advisory Board Member Aleah Marrow has achieved an epic milestone in her newly launched career as a filmmaker. Aleah’s debut short film, Wish Hill–which had its world premiere last December at a special DLE event–has won the Best Children Short at the February Indie Short Fest of the Los Angeles International Film Festival. Wish Hill was selected from 28 hours’ worth of short films representing 15 countries.
Aleah’s film is now eligible to compete at the Fest’s annual awards for the Best Children Short of the Year later this summer.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to create art and excited to become a better filmmaker. I’m enjoying this win!” exudes Aleah, whose 8-minute film was shot in her hometown of Durham, NC.
Stay tuned for updates as Aleah is entering Wish Hill in more film festivals around the US and beyond.
