Response from festival:
Dear LB Productions,
We are very sorry to hear that your experience with us was less than satisfactory. You should have received several confirmation emails, firstly to let you know that you were selected to be in the festival and from there, further communication would have detailed your place within the semis and finals. Alternatively, if you were not included in the festival, you should have also been notified.
Should you wish to give us another chance this year, please contact us and we would be happy to give you a complimentary entry to the category of your choice.
We hope to hear from you soon,
Laura Ellen Wilson
