Can we stop the insanity? No one is going to reject your film for
having boxes checked by hand. If festivals request that the thing be
typed, it's only so the information is legible (because believe me, it
often isn't). And if festivals have these forms and rules at all,
it's just to make sure they get all your information right, so that
when they email you your acceptance or rejection, you won't later
complain to Frameworks about how you never even heard back from that
rude festival after their email to you bounces back to them.
