Emergence: Out of the Shadows  has won multiple awards and has been an official selection at nearly 50 established film festivals worldwide, including an Academy Award, BAFTA, and five Canadian Screen Award qualifying festivals including the Vancouver Queer Film Festival,  the Vancouver Asian Film Festival where it was nominated for three major awards, and the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival where it was the Closing Night Film and picked up Best Documentary. It has also had over fifty screenings in schools across British Columbia. The documentary was broadcast on three television stations in Canada, including Knowledge Network, TV Ontario, and OUTtv.

Producer and Cast Alex Sangha invites organizations interested in a screening and discussion of the film to contact Sher Vancouver. Films about coming out in the South Asian community are essential as they help raise awareness and understanding about the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in this community.

Emergence: Out of the Shadows  has been approved to go into Grade 10 to 12 classrooms throughout the Surrey School District

"The release of the English, Hindi, and Punjabi subtitled versions of  Emergence: Out of the Shadows  is a significant milestone for the film and for Sher Vancouver.
