It is a weird thing submitting and then *almost* forgetting about the film for a few months until the selectors decide where your film is going to screen.
The whole process is incredibly nerve racking. *Have I sent them the right details? Will they like it? What happens if NOONE screens it*
Not hearing back as quickly as you would like means you spend a long time questioning whether you should submit to more, more, more...I am assured it is a waiting game. But goodness does the waiting make you bite your nails!
