My Dog Ate My Email

Posted in News on July 1st, 2012 | Be the first to comment

My apologies to whoever sent an email yesterday asking about notifications. I saw the note, but then it was eaten by our server, so, a bit hard to answer. The ways of servers are a mystery to me.

Notifications are Being Sent

Posted in News on June 29th, 2012 | Be the first to comment

My Computer Died–A Tale of Woe

Posted in News on May 17th, 2012 | Be the first to comment

There is much sadness as my computer died a sudden and tragic death (not the festival’s, but my personal one). How does this effect the noble filmmakers who have sent or are about to send submissions in for 2012? Well, for the most part it does not. It is however playing holy havoc with my communications. Have you ever tried to make a WordPress post with a phone? Or retrieve an old e-mail from an Outlook database when you don’t actually have Outlook running?
All this means is it takes me four or five extra steps to figure out who you are at 2 AM. So until my new one arrives please be patient with e-mails and other online communications.

Matthew M. Foster

Late Deadline: May 21!
