Gah! Why can’t I have 5 films ex equo in the first place? Same for second and third? Goodness, I just KNOW how much work went into each and every one of them. And so many don’t make the cut just because … well, because of what? the new one, the shining one, the one I haven’t watched yet? It seems terribly unfair … and it is, it truly, truly is. Dear filmmakers – do not take ANY rankings personally. We are but human and have to pick and weed. And – as in nature – what gets weeded might just be the prodigy for healing everyone’s soul. So keep on handing in your films to festivals. It WILL get picked one day – because it must.
