Entry Fee Rereredux

Though I'm not surprised to see this pop up on Frameworks once again,
and don't wish to see if persist for long, where do you think your
entry fees go? Venues don't rent themselves, prints (and tapes) don't
mysteriously teleport from filmmaker to projectionist, and programs
don't always come from stolen paper.
I have never known a festival director who is well paid for what they
do, and I've known many more that are entirely unpaid.
A festival takes money to run, and if you don't want to pay an entry
fee to a particular festival, then you have made a valid choice to not
have your work screened there.
