Subject: Your submission to the 2008 Bicycle Film Festival

Dear Filmmaker,

We would like to thank you for the submission of your film to the 2008 Bicycle Film Festival. We are very fortunate to have received hundreds of entries from around the world - many of these films were in fact made for the festival by people who share the same love for bicycles. It is a complex puzzle to program the festival. Due to the number of submissions, we have had to turn down many well made films.

We wish to inform you that your film has not been selected. However, please consider submitting again next year! If you have any questions feel free to contacts us at

We wish you all the best with your projects & endeavors. Ride your bike over to one of the festivals and come say hello.

Best regards,

Kempton Mooney
Film Traffic Coordinator
Bicycle Film Festival

Too bad. I was looking forward to that NY trip. That was fun, and I learned a few things. Better luck next time.

Wes that's BS!!! That film was AWESOME!!! "We didn't select your film because we're too lazy to view them all." That's what it all boils down to. Ya know?! How about sending out a letter to all the entrants stating that, since they received SO MANY films, the results would postponed until we've had a chance to view them all! THAT would be the proper thing to do!!! Sorry, man!!
