August 6, 1998
This month's IFP newsletter arrived yesterday, a few days late as usual,
containing the news that Sundance's early submission deadline is tomorrow.
It's been two years since my rough cut was first turned down by Sundance,
and I wasn't sure that I was going to apply again this year, but the early
submission concept is appealing in that I'll be notified by September 15
if I'm accepted. And I'm feeling a little lucky lately, and $35 isn't
much to lose...so I had the Sundance office fax me an entry form, and sent
a tape to them via Express Mail this afternoon.
I finished a draft of my press kit tonight. That was the biggest
film market-related task that I had on my agenda; next I have to go through
last year's market catalog and make a mailing list of all the companies
that I need to notify of my market screening.
