The News Paper wins IndieFest Commendation Award

The Sri Lankan Sinhala language feature film, “The News Paper” has received a Commendation Award at the IndieFEST Film Festival, California, USA. The Certificate of the Award was presented to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday. They had also attended the premiere of the movie at the PVR Cinemas in One Galle Face.

The IndieFEST Film Festival admired “The News Paper” for its outstanding depiction of liberation, social justice and concepts of antagonism in a motion picture. It is a co-direction of Sarath Kothalawala and Kumara Thirimadura and was co-produced by Minister Dr. Bandula Gunawardena, Ravindra Guruge and H.D. Premasiri. The movie is now playing at cinemas islandwide.

The film tells the story of an unwavering friendship between two individuals on a journey to right a wrong; it is the story of two men from rural parts of Sri Lanka wading their way into the City to request a correction be printed on a newspaper which falsely accuses one of them to be a terrorist and the turbulent passage they endure along the way.

A number of countries including the USA, Italy, India, Australia, Lebanon, Syria, Switzerland and the UK had presented their works at the film festival, recognised as one of the leading film festivals in the world.
