Giovanna Caruso has won a prestigious Award of Recognition from The Accolade Global Film Competition. The award was given for Caruso’s exciting short film, “A Life Worth Living,” which goes through the emotional struggles of a terrible loss and the different ways people face grief. “A Life Worth Living” features exceptional storyline and overall quality.
“I am honored to have received this award in such an early stage of my career. Making this short film was one of the best and most terrifying experiences of my life. When I first moved on [sic] this country, I wasn’t able to speak English and I used movies as a tool to learn this wonderful language. Seven years later I write a script, I produce it alongside the amazing Rocco Michaluk and I win such a fabulous award.”
