Iqbal said: “The reason for my trip to Cannes was to meet film festival programmers.

“I’ve felt in the past they’ve been very dismissive but this time I wanted them to feel the person behind the project.”

Iqbal’s film has so far been screened at Limerick Film Festival, and will be hosted at festivals in India, Spain and the UK.
