Is it better to make a Short Film in your Native language for film festivals across the world or we should prefer English?

I am from India and i like to film Local People. Generally you Don't find a person speaking in English here. But then I have seen Films where even the local people are using English. It looks more fake to me. Does it really helps to film in English? Or the subs will do?

Personally, I would shoot it in native language and add the subtitles unless I can find someone that speaks (almost) perfect English.
I get better performances that way because actors can concentrate on acting more than talking in an another language.
