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.

“We need to remember that there are other values beyond the financial, and that our American artistic heritage has to be preserved and shared by all of us. Just as we’ve learned to take pride in our poets and writers, in jazz and the blues, we need to take pride in our cinema, our great American art form.” Martin Scorsese
