As I’ve written about before, applying to film festivals has been an exciting and disheartening adventure. The market has changed drastically and little films like ours are so hard to get recognized. However, even though another festival didn’t have enough slots to include END they made sure to brighten my day.
Instead of the usual form letter, this festival sent me back an individualized response with positive feedback. The selection committee enjoyed how “philosophical and positive” END is, and “loved the ending”.
It’s funny how even those little words can boost an artist’s spirit.
