Forwarded MessageFrom: San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival Date: Sat, 15 Sep 2007 18:53:50 -0500To: John-Clay Burnett Subject: 2007 SAICFF - Joel's Journey

Dear John-Clay,
Thank you for your submission of Joel's Journey to the 2007 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. We greatly value your submission and can see the hard work put into your film. Your work was joined by over 120 other films, from which our judges had to narrow the competition down to less than 40 semi-finalists. Congratulations! Your film has been selected for the semi-final round of the competition, and qualifies you to compete for category awards and the grand prize Jubilee Award for Best of Festival. As a semi-finalist, your film will be shown at least once during the Festival, and possibly twice before the viewing audience (though a double showing is not guaranteed). Times have yet to be determined, but will be posted on the San Antonio Independent Christian Films website soon.We are strongly encouraging filmmakers who have been accepted as semi-finalists for the Jubilee Awards to attend the festival. In addition to the $10,000 Jubilee grand prize, more than a half dozen first place awards will be distributed this year, and your film could qualify. We would like to know whether not you will be attending the 2006 SAICFF October 19th-21st. Please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can make plans to welcome you at the sign in table. Some filmmakers may also be given an opportunity to address the audience briefly about their film. I also recommend that you consider attending the 2007 Christian Filmmakers Academy, to be held October 22-24 at the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel in Downtown San Antonio. It will provide a valuable opportunity to learn from a distinctively Christian perspective how to advance in your technical skills as a filmmaker. Be sure to watch the website for updates regarding both the Academy and the Festival. We hope to see you there!
