    Response from festival:

    Hello Gianluca,

    I apologize for our inability to respond to your message on Messenger at the earliest opportunity. We have encountered a technical problem, and as you may have guessed, Facebook's response time in resolving such issues is quite slow.

    Nevertheless, I would like to seize this moment to offer my congratulations on the selection of your film, "Life in Smoke," for the final Link IFF Official Selection. It's an outstanding achievement, and I noticed that you have proudly showcased it on your website.

    Best regards,
    The Selection Team
    Link IFF
