So I start to read the final announcement and assume it’s just like all the others:
First – we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for submitting your film to The Clifton Film Celebration. This is our first year – a completely unknown festival [I think they recycled last year’s email here] – and we were humbled by the number of excellent submissions we received from all over the world. Thanks for taking a chance on us!
Sadly, we didn’t secure enough time in our venue to accommodate all the films we wanted to include this year. Some difficult choices had to be made, but we’re THRILLED to tell you that your film made the cut!
Attached you’ll find Official Selection laurels to use on your promotional materials.
Be on the lookout for an information packet which will include instructions on formatting your final cut for our festival, travel & lodging info for Clifton, VA, Screening Schedule, info on how to get your free pass, and discount admission codes for any of your cast & crew who would like to attend.
Please feel free to reach out via email at [email] with any questions. Be sure to like & share us on Facebook (Clifton Film Celebration) and follow us on Twitter (@filmdpoe).
The goal now is to make sure as many people see your film as possible – so do what you can to help us get the word out!
