Budapest, April 2006 – Earlier this month, The World Academy of Arts, Literature, and Media - WAALM announced the nomination of Dustin Ellis in the category of Dramatic Arts (Best Directing of Animated film), for the film “Babak & Friends – A First Norooz”.

WAALM, based in Budapest, is a young organization aiming to support, develop, and promotes the dramatic and fine arts, creative writing and poetry, as well as professional journalism and media productions by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners, and benefiting the public.

Dustin Ellis, the director of this heartwarming holiday special, said, “While I am honored to receive this award, the real credit should go to my team and the talented people who have brought this project together. My producers Aly Jetha, Shabnam Rezaei, and my dear wife Mastaneh Moghadam are the reason we were able to bring this film to market. With their continued commitment, we will be able to drive the mission of Norooz Productions, which is to entertain children while teaching them a little about their culture and heritage.”
