Film festival directors are finalists in Asian awards

Pushpinder Chowdhury and Harvinder Nath, creators and directors of the annual Asian Women’s Film Festival, have been selected as finalists in the Art & Culture Award, part of the prestigious Asian Women of Achievement Awards 2003.
The Arts & Culture Award is given to women flourishing in the world of performing arts, management of the arts and creative writing.
The Asian Women of Achievement Awards, which are now in their fourth year, were founded in 1999 and were the brainchild of Pinky Lilani and Munir Samji. In essence, the Awards applaud and celebrate the commitment, dedication and determination of Asian women to their professional and personal achievements within the commercial, professional, artistic and humanitarian sectors.
There are eight Award categories: the Arts & Culture Award; the Social & Humanitarian Award; Business Woman of the Year – Corporate; Entrepreneur of the Year; Media Professional of the Year; Professional of the Year; Young Achiever of the Year; and the Chairman’s Award.
The star-studded Awards ceremony has historically attracted many well-known, high profile guests including Clive Anderson, Imran and Jemima Khan, Lisa Aziz, Lord and Lady Paul, Lord and Lady Lloyd Webber, Martin Bashir, Meera Syal MBE and Shakira Caine.
This year’s presentation ceremony will take place on Thursday 8th May 2003 at the London Hilton on Park Lane and will be hosted by comedienne and actress Nina Wadia.
Tickets to the Awards Ceremony are available from the Asian Women of Achievement Awards office on 020 7828 0999 or via the Awards’ website www.awaawards.com
