‘The Nice Fairy’ also features an Afghan girl seeking to escape a forced marriage.
The film has fared at numerous international festivals and was acclaimed at Better World Film Festival (BWFF) in Germany.

Euroshorts is an international short film festival created in 1992 in Poland.
Its most essential principle is to promote and support young filmmakers – and all screenings of fiction, documentary, animation, experimental films and creative commercials serve that very purpose.
The event is organized under the honorary patronage of Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, the Mayor of Gdańsk, and Mieczysław Struk, the Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship.
