It seems that one couldn't even remake Dominic's Hit the Turnpike!
these days.

Dear Frameworkers,


Iím submitting my experimental films to festivals again, after a hiatus
of several years. When I submitted before, in the early 2000s, I
always received a response from the festival, whether my work was
accepted or rejected. Now, I find that festivals that reject my work
rarely contact me at all.


I wonder why this is the case? Iíve paid a fee to enter, usually, and
it seems to me that the very least the programmers, or their interns,
can do is to send me a form letter letting me know that my work didnít
make the cut. It would be even better to receive a thoughtful response
with some feedback about my work. I realize that programmers often
have a lot of entries to view and judge, but shouldnít a response, even
a canned response, to each and every filmmaker, be a standard of
professional courtesy?


I know that there are curators and programmers on this list. I will
appreciate hearing their perspectives, as well as those of other
filmmakers. I would also be interested to hear about festivals that do
respond to all applicants.


Thank you,


Caryn Cline
