The versatile actor, Shefali Shah’s directorial debut ‘Someday’ selected for USA Film Festival’s International Short Film and Video Competition.
Actress Shefali Shah proved her mettle in acting and now she is now taking up Direction. What’s even better is that Shefali Shah’s debut directorial venture, ‘Someday’ has been selected for the 51st Annual USA Film Festival’s International Short Film and Video Competition. The short film has been shortlisted in the finalist category of the Oscar-accredited film festival and will undergo the final round of judging next week. The festival starts on April 21st and lasts up to 25th 2021.
It is a story of two women, united by the umbilical cord and separated by a door. Vidhi, a frontline warrior, comes home to a 7-day quarantine after 15 days on duty. Only to discover that her mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s. The two characters share conversations some real, some imaginary. Ranging from the past and the future with no present to tie them. Their togetherness oscillates between what was, what can’t be, and what may just be someday.
Speaking about her directorial debut project, Shefali said, “Someday is my first trial and error with direction. Our labor of love has made it to the final selection of the USA film festival, and I can’t even begin to tell how excited I am. The reason I send it to the festivals across the globe was to see where I stand as a total newcomer in the direction. And this is such a big assurance that I must’ve done something right.”
Meanwhile, Shefali will be next seen in ‘Darlings’ along with Alia Bhatt and Vijay Varma. She also has Vipul Shah’s ‘Human’ and the Season 2 of Netflix’s Emmy winner, ‘Delhi Crime‘.
