I had submitted 'LIVE LIFE' to the Calgary Fringe Film Festival few months ago, and today I've received an email from them, which really surprised me!!
Usually after the selection, they will email you to notify whether your film is selected or not been selected...
So here it goes from the email:
"The results are in and programming has been completed for the 2007 Calgary Fringe Film Festival. It is always a difficult task selecting films from the hundreds of entries we receive, particularly considering the quality and amazing stories that are being told by you, the filmmakers.
We are excited to tell you that your film is an Official Selection to our 2007 Festival which runs August 10th to 19th in Calgary, AB, Canada.The exact schedule of when your film will screen will be published on our website next week at www.calgaryfringe.ca
In addition, we will be announcing those films which have been selected to receive a recognition award for excellence in filmmaking and an award certiicate.
All filmmakers who are an Official Selection are invited, with a guest, to attend any and all of our film screening sessions. Please email to indicate if you are able to attend, especially for the screening of your film.
Next week we will also announce the nominees for each category (short films, mid length films and feature length films) for Best Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Actress. These Awards will be given out at the Awards Party on Saturday August 18th, along with Audience Choice Awards in each category..."
Wow!! That's really incredible and unbelievable!! 'LIVE LIFE' received an official selection and will be screen at a film festival in Calgary! hehe!! Ofcoz I also wish to have nominees for any of the 'Best Of' category later on but I'm already happy enough just having it selected. :)
Anyway, we'll wait and see...
And ofcoz, very BIG thanks to all the Live Lifers and vfs and everyone who supports!
