Response from festival:
Apologies for the confusion, your film was shortlisted. It made the short list of 24 films selected from 113 films submitted. But unfortunately it didn't make the final selection (of 12 films) for Awards screening at Arnolfini. This should have been made clearer in email.
Sincere apologies. Congratulations on a great film.
(Have sent you an email too).
