"From the 422 short and full-length movies submitted from 61 countries worldwide, the jury of the "Best Independents International Films 2017" in Karlsruhe, Germany, has announced the award recipients in eleven categories.

In the category "Best Director," Michael Bofshever was honored for his short film
"Echo Park Blues" (USA 2016).

The film tells the story of a genuine jazz saxophone player, who has written the song of his life—if only someone would listen. Told with great sensitivity, the director succeeds in capturing the ambiance of jazz and wrapping it into a wonderful and delicate story."
