July 16, 1998
I got all excited yesterday because there was a message on my machine from
the Independent Feature Project/West, whose New Visions film series I'd
applied to recently. No one I'd sent the film to had ever called
before, and I had high hopes of an acceptance. But, when I finally
got in touch with the IFP/West guy today, it turned out that he was
merely calling to turn me down in person.... Still, it was a slightly
encouraging development. The fellow I talked to, Josh Welch, said
that he liked the film, and I found out there were 100 applicants for the
screening I missed out on; I doubt he was calling every one of them back.
He also said that a representative from the IFP/West would check out HONEYMOON
at the film market, so maybe he has something in mind for the film, like
a future New Visions screening.
