    Thank you for selecting my film Desa Timun for Golden Bee International Children's Film Festival. It's unfortunate that because I didn't receive the earlier, I couldn't join the Q&A session. I hope that the communication can be improved and the festival can reach more people. All the best for Golden Bee International Children's Film Festival!

    Thank you for becoming a part of the festival, Daud!. The communication was sent to all the participating filmmakers, including you, on the email ids given on their filmfreeway profile. As you were communicating from a different email id, we had subsequently shared the meeting information on your new email id as well as on your whatsapp no.

    We were so happy to be selected by GBICFF with our project!!! The turn around time from our submission to selection was lightning fast! The festival was great and the Q&A we were invited to do was great. The festival really did their research and asked pertinent and important questions that was at the heart of why we did our project. We look forward to more opportunities to submit our work!
