Rejection happens to everyone... Even Festival Directors... Here is something from my inbox today...
We am so sorry to tell you we were unable to include your short film(s) into the 2008 Slamdance program. Thank you so much for submitting. Slamdance is limited by space constraints in Park City to program less than 70 shorts every year, though the quality of submissions would allow us to program many many more.
Please keep in mind that Slamdance is just one festival out of hundreds of others. Our film program is based on the subjective decisions of our programming committees. Please don’t take this rejection as any indication of the quality of your film, or its potential for a successful, well-regarded future.
We wish the best for you and your film.
Slamdance Programming Department
