    After receiving an initial acceptance email from this fest, I never heard anything more about our screening time, date, etc. When their schedule was posted online, I noticed that my film was not listed. I emailed the festival to ask them what had happened, but never received any reply. So I do not know if my film played, if it was actually accepted but didn't screen due to a scheduling error, or if I received the acceptance notification completely in error. This leaves me in a weird spot since I don't know whether to claim this as an official selection and part of my film's screening history. As far as the festival's online schedule is concerned, we never played there. But my status on Film Freeway indicates "accepted," and they sent me a personal email with laurels and everything.
