My short film "Conscience" is an official selection @ the 8th Slum Film  Festival,Kenya 2018. This year's theme is "The New Environment". The  mission & vision of this fest is to discover, inspire & equip  young independent film and theatre artists from the slums around Nairobi  with practical skills to develop and sell their concepts, as well as  use film as a key tool for promoting social change within their  communities.
Founded in 2011 in Nairobi, the Slum Film Festival is a community-based  annual film event featuring stories from, by, and about people living  in urban slums. It is both a celebration of the creativity of filmmakers  living and working in slums, as well as an opportunity to promote –  through a week of outdoor screenings – a diverse range of films within  communities with limited or no access to cinema.The Slum Film Festival  is a joint project hosted by Slum-TV and The Hot Sun Foundation, and  supported by World Friends, the Royal African Society, and the Embassy  of Spain (Kenya), and the Alliance Française. 

This is awesome!
Animated short film "Stop or Melt!" is in  the final top 10 and will be competing @ the 16th edition of Vaasa  Wildlife & Nature International Film Festival, Vaasa, Finland.

A message from 2018 Children's International Film Festival,USA.
Hi Danish,
 We wanted to send you a note, thanking you for having your film screen  at this year's Children's International Film Festival in Western North  Carolina!

Your film "Stop or Melt!" was shown to students across  Catawba County in Western North Carolina during the week of April  25th-29th, 2018. Your film was shown multiple times during the week to  groups of 100-300 student each time, either in the school's auditorium or in a local arts center.Your film was listed in the agenda that each teacher and school representative received.

 We were so excited to have your film part of our Children's  International Film Festival this year! Your film has had a positive  impact on the school children that were able to attend the festival last  week, and we are certain it will either help some of them strive to  become filmmakers themselves or just have a greater appreciation for art  from around the world.
