The Indian feature film Evening Shadows won the audience award for Best Feature Film at the recently concluded Chicago South Asian Film Festival ( CSAFF ).

"We are happy that our film Evening Shadows is being awarded and appreciated even at mainstream film festivals, apart from LGBTQ film festivals. This fulfills one of the objectives of the film—to reach out a mass audience with the message of acceptance. Now we push for the second objective—of releasing the film commercially, in theaters and television—in India," director Sridhar Rangayan said in a statement.

Evening Shadows screened to a full house, and received support from the local LGBT South Asian group Trikone Chicago. Local transgender artist Sal moderated the Q&A.

The festival presented more than 70 films at the Showplace ICON Theater and Columbia College in downtown Chicago as well as AMC Oakbrook Center on Sept. 20-23.
