    The festival selected my series, programmed it, sent me the programme and it didn't appear. I contacted them twice about that and on the second occasion they replied apologising and saying that in a couple of days they would send me the programme with it included. I had no communication after this and I want them to remove it from their website so that it does not appear as released.
    UPDATE: I sent you several emails including questions about format and srt. You've never answered about nothing! Only this one time about the mistake on the program and then I didn't have contact anymore.

    Dear Paula,
    We do appreciate your feedback and will ensure that we work on the communication process. Unfortunately we did not receive a screening copy of your film, hence it was not in the final program. We have updated our website as requested.
