How sad that there the "bad apples" are giving honest Film Festivals a bad rap. All of our Programmers are required to sign an agreement to watch submissions in their entirety. And every submission gets 5 views/reviews that are individually weighted - these then decide the outcomes for acceptances/rejections. In the end fractions of points separate who gets in and who gets left out. We are limited by total number of days and screening time at our venues - and excellent films always get declined solely because of this fact.
