Congratulations to Yukiko Mishima as her short, "I, Jiro Kawakami of the IMPERIAL" wins "Best Short" of the 2023 Global Stage Hollywood Film Festival. "I, Jiro Kawakami of the IMPERIAL" touches on what it means to have an impact with artistry. It asks what a lifetime of dedication to craft means when there is nothing at the end to show for it except one last excellent meal. We have selected this short as our Best Short of 2023 because of its poetic examination of a chef with an artist's soul" - Yonatan Hirshberg - Director of Curation.
