Shadow play on set

My film is included in the tour of Little Big Shots. It will be screened at the Sydney Opera House!! I wonder if this also means it will be going to Singapore?

Yeah, so I just googled myself. and what did I come across but this page : “” so apparently, my film was accepted…. maybe? None of the links on the page work, and I never got any notification. Although, according to the deadline, I they have until June 30th to notify me. So maybe the site is still being worked on, and I just stumbled on it. Does that happen??
