Last week, after the Sundance festival committee announced its 2012 slate, I posted an entry requesting all those who submitted films to the festival, whose films were rejected, to email me and introduce themselves and their films, so that I can, at the very least, take a look at their work, and get to know the filmmakers. It's something I've done in previous years since this site's beginnings; and I'm glad to say that, unlike the last 2 years I made the request, this year, I received quite a lot of responses, thanks in part to the site's growth over the last 2 1/2 years, as well as raised awareness since joining the indieWIRE network earlier this year.

I did this each of the last 2 years, and I figured I'd make it an annual thing; especially as awareness of S&A continues to broaden. There were no takers when I posted this in 2010 and 2009, but maybe someone (or some people) will bite in 2011... or maybe not.
