In her gracious message, Madan commended the Tallinn Film Festival for providing a platform that allowed her to celebrate the global power of cinema. She thanked the festival organizers for fostering an environment where diverse voices and narratives could converge.
"Wrapping up the most incredible 12 days of my life! Watching over 16 films, meeting extraordinary individuals, and creating a lifetime of memories. Having been here last year with Sanaa, I understand the nerves, anticipation, and anxiety from the other side. Now, as a jury member, I've realized how limited my perspective was last year. Taking responsibility for the outcome, whether the film wins or not, cannot be done alone. It's about viewing a film as a culmination of every aspect of filmmaking coming together to create magic. There's no formula. The best we can do is keep chasing the truth and hope to find magic in that. Thank you @tallinnblacknightsff for enabling me to celebrate the power of cinema from around the world!" she wrote.
Madan's note encapsulates the transformative journey of being a jury member at the Tallinn Film Festival. Her evolution from a spectator to a key decision-maker underscores the multifaceted nature of cinema and its profound impact on those dedicated to its exploration and celebration.
