I personally think it's absurd that any festival would disqualify a
short film if it's not a premiere. Features, sure. And having an
exclusive regional premiere is nice for a short that has buzz, but
otherwise it seems pedantic.

Even worse when you have two (non-concurrent) festivals in the same
town fighting over the same films. The only people getting hurt in
that case tend to be the filmmakers.
