Sundance News

Since there are no exclamation points in the title, you might have guessed that the film did not get into Sundance. I had a good sulk about it, and I'm still disappointed, but I'm moving on. Still hoping for other great fests to invite us...

Sundance is only the starting point. Good luck with the other fest!

Sorry to hear this, but Sundance is, frankly, almost impossible to crack.

Sadly, the word indie no longer means "made my new filmmakers with love and talent," but "made by people with fifteen million to blow and a close friendship with Kevin Spacey."

FWIW, Casey says applying to Sundance is "masochistic." (His tolerance for rejection is as low as any other filmmaker's.)

So, now you can move on to hearing from and applying to festivals that are less masochistic and more nourishing to your self-worth, right?

Chin up!

Yeah, that's certainly not a reflection on the quality of film you've made. I was surprised by how few features were on the program this year.

agreed, with all of the above. sundance isn't mostly for 'true' love-of-filmm guerilla indies made for nothing, at least not for features. it is masochistic. why apply when you know the chances are so slim? i don't know. i guess you could say that about filmmaking in general.

the slamdance rejection (see newer post) stings a little more, because i think the film was 'right' for slamdance.

and thanks, chuck, for your comments. it's easy to feel like these rejections are a reflection of the film's quality...
