Much has been documented about the trials and struggles of making an independent film, and with good reason: it's incredibly difficult, and not many are able to accomplish this feat. Unfortunately, many first-time filmmakers operate under the misapprehension that once the movie is finished they can just "take it so Sundance." Yet the task of finding placement at a major film festival is often more daunting and exhausting then the making of the movie itself.
Following filmmakers through the trenches of the festival circuit over a 12-month period, OFFICIAL REJECTION takes a lighthearted, realistic look at the politics, pitfalls, costs and tolls taken on life at the fests.
