So... Sundance Didn't Select Your Film; We'd Like To Get To Know You. Introduce Yourself & Your Work

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.

Sundance

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.

The title says it all... the 2012 Sundance Film Festival US/world dramatic/documentary competition titles were announced earlier today, with selections from other categories still to be announced in coming days. Regardless, those who submitted their films for consideration should already know whether or not they're in.

And if you're one of the many thousand filmmakers whose films (shorts or features) were rejected by the 2012 Sundance selection committee, don't fret; as I'm sure you know, despite how influential that top-tier festival is, it is the first of the year, and there will be a few other industry-relevant film festivals for you to consider, throughout 2012.

Of interest to those of us on this blog are films by and/or about people of African descent. So, if you or your film fit the bill, and we've never written about either before, I'd love to hear from you! Maybe there's some way S&A can aid in raising awareness for your film... even if it's something as simple as just profiling it on this blog.

At the very least, it'll be great just to know you exist, so we can become familiar with you and your work, and track from hereon.

So, if you agree, feel free to send me an email to obensont@gmail.com, with all the vitals about you and your film, and we'll go from there.

Good luck to everyone!
