Chicago Underground Film Festival

Does anyone have a clue on what happened to announcing the selected entries? March 5th was the rejection letter date. Then it was the 17th. Today is the 20th. I've now been waiting almost three weeks for rejection. This is like my last marriage. Anyone know what's up? I realize my movie didn't make it, but I'd love to know what the deal is.
