Teenager Angad Singh Wins Accolade at Spinning Wheel Film festival Hollywood


Comments Email this Article


    Thirteen-year old Angad Singh is truly making the world a better place. Through his new documentary film, "One Light," he reaches out to his neighbors and community in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, to tell them about his faith (Sikhism) and to learn about them as well. The mission is to connect - drawing on similarities, and inspiring everyone to take baby-steps in the direction of making this world a friendlier place by education, connection and inspiration.

    Angad states: “After sharing our backgrounds and beliefs with each other, we were thrilled to find that, even though we were rooted in different parts of the world and practiced different religions, we had so much in common in terms of family and faith values, love for humanity, nature and animals, etc.”

    “The idea for us, as Americans, is to celebrate what binds us together, and not get mired in what divides us.”

    You can read more about Angad Singh and "One Light" at his blog.

    "One Light" won the First Prize in the Junior Division of this year's SikhNet Youth Film Festival and it will have it's theatrical premiere at this year's Spinning Wheel Film Festival (SWFF) in Hollywood, which celebrates the stories of Sikhs worldwide, and brings diverse interpretations of their culture, identity and history to the screen.

    The festival kicks off on Nov 17th at the Writers and Guild Theatre, Beverly Hills, California. For more information visit
