Award winner of Best Drama Short of the Year for his film “Sceptre“, Rouben Manika, who couldn’t attend the ISA Hollywood Annual Awards at the Raleigh Studios last August, was finally able to celebrate his recognition.

The ISA official trophy was received by the French director in Paris.

The “Sceptre” team was in Los Angeles for the Independent Shorts Awards live screening in May 2019, held in Burbank, CA.

The award-winning French thriller was the chosen film to close the screening blocks of 2019 ISA Hollywood Annual Awards.

Upon returning to the family home, everything does not go as planned; and this, especially during the reunion with his mother. Despite this new tumultuous start, Stan has only one goal: to become a new man.
