Shout out to all volunteers who helped in preparing the #BEFF2016 decorations, set up and during the film festival. Without you guys, things will not be smooth. BEFF truly thankful to have you all. Though I am strict or fierce (you can say anything, but let me know ahhhh) even though just by reading my text, I believe this is a learning point for everyone of you which few of you did tell me "Life lessons"? Lol hahaha. Teaching you guys from how to promote at different stations to being aware of the surrounding and ushering audiences, it was totally awesome because everyone of you are eager to learn. Knowing that most of you are new (besides Russell, Nurlyn and Ryan), I understand that at certain point you are struggling but did your best. No matter what, I'm happy to have all of you who put your commitments as a volunteer. Nonetheless, let's look forward to the next #BorneoEcoFilmFestival! Continue to spread the love for #BEFF! @suriasabahofficial #filmfestival #Borneo #Sabah #filmmaker #film #community #NGO #MELAPI #KotaKinabalu #event #youth #filmmaking #volunteer
