San Diego Black Film Festival
Caos & Consequences: Dead End, Repentless, and Future Shock are official selection to the SDBFF January 27-30, 2011.
It's great to finally get the opportunity to show the film to an audience and show the world what we have cooking here.
The festival is 10+ years old so it has a rep and I noticed that San Diego has a few niche festival going on in that city.
2:10 am pst
Some of you may notice Baby Amy won't be included in the screening. Well, apparently the film is too long at 2hrs
and needed to be cut down to 90mins and so my favorite had to be cut. I wish it could be included. But hopefully
Baby Amy will primiere soon at another venue.
Been a long road, getting turn down (read rejected) by numerous festivals.
The sad part about being rejected by a festival is you they never tell you why or give valueable feedback for the rejection.
I know a lot of filmmakers who are frustrated by that. Hey, my opinion, this the age of computers, internet, and hand
held devices. The screeners fill out a form, comments, points marks, they scan them in and email it out with the rejection
or acceptance. "yo, I don't like your comments!" But you know what, there's valueable info.
This would be true especially if your film "sucked" and they said so, than one could save money by not sending it
out to other fests. I being sarcastic. Haven't really blogged since production but I'll be blogging everyday
during the fest, at 2am. Peace. Happy 2011.
