    David. thank you so much for your participation and attendance last year! Hope to see you in November!

  • I would like to thank the festival very much for the appreciation (THE GOLDEN NOTE AWARD) we received for our short film "The Four Loves"! It is a pity, however, that I myself could not attent this beautiful festival. I wish the whole team of The White Light City Film Festival a lot of success and a beautiful future!
