Ding, ding, ding….
I knew this day was coming. I’ve gotten my first reply from a film festival, in this case the Venice Bienale. Did I get in? No. I received instead a very courteous ‘ding‘. I feel a bit like I’m back in high school waiting for college acceptance letters.
Kudos to the festival organizers, for having the decency to send me notice. I wasn’t so lucky with You Win Some, You Lose Some, which I submitted to a clutch of fests, and I don’t think any of them sent me notice that they’d turned me down. Coney Island Film festival, I’m talking about you (and 4 or 5 others!)
I’m sure this is but the first of many, so it’s just as well I make a start of getting used to it.
