festivals The Official "Have you heard from Cannes yet?" thread

Hi everyone,

We've submitted a short film to all three sections (Official/Directors fortnight/Critics week) and still haven't heard from any of them. I know the official selection is to be announced next week, so it rejection letters should be coming in real soon.

Anyone received anything yet?
 
Same here! Got the rejection from the official selection about ten days ago, than Critics this past Thursday and now, waiting for the Fortnight. Last time I submitted to the Fortnight, I never received a rejection letter, so I'm guessing that's it for this year!
Locarno up next ;)
 
How about this year? Anyone heard from Cannes yet? I submitted a narrative short to the main competition and semaine and haven't heard anything yet ..

Can anyone tell me how your rejection letter from the Semaine say? Mine says “the selection committee and myself (the coordinator) have considered the film with upmost attention... thank you again... Unfortunately...” It’s so well written that I can’t identify whether the film was really considered or it’s merely consoling...

Yeah, I got exactly the same email ...
Did you submit to the main competition as well? Have you heard anything yet?

Yes. It also rejected the film but earlier. In fact, I submitted the film on the same day. That’s why I was really confused about the letter from the Semaine, which arrived later with ambiguous words. Only Directors’ Fortnight left. But as some threads have indicated that it may not even send a letter, I don’t have any high hopes.
