The final notifications for all filmmakers went out yesterday. As a thorougly rejected filmmaker myself, this is an ironic time of the festival cycle for me. We have had a lot of responses from filmmakers ranging from "You guys suck!" to "Darn, I'll try again next year". I appreciate all of these emotions. Please understand that no matter what, filmmaker communication is one of our highest priorities and notifications are a point of pride for us. If for some reason, you have not received an email or phone call from our programming staff, please send an email to submissions (at) trueindependent (dot) org and we will try to get to the bottom of the problem. We are also always on the lookout for suggestions to improve the process. Any feedback you can give us is definitely appreciated.
