Sharing her excitement, Rima said, " I love the enthusiasm and exuberance of an opening night. So excited that Bulbul Can Sing is the opening night film at Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. Special thanks to the organisers. The film has truly been special for me as a filmmaker. The response and appreciation we have received from across the places we have traveled to with the film is also very special. I'm looking forward to the Australian premiere of the film and interacting with the audiences there and having a conversation with them on cinema."
The festival will be celebrating its 10th year with the central theme of courage this year and will commence on August 8.
