Fairplay? Not really.
Okay. The Cinemasports competition is over now. The outcome – well, in a phrase – „it could have been much better“. As a sequel to my last post in here I would like to say a couple of words about the final outcome, the winners and everything about it as a whole.
First – about the „voting“. Well, definitely in such a competition, despite the fact that it is experimental, voluntary and „art for art’s sake“ type of event, there should have been a jury and some objective criteria for judging out which movies and good and which are not. Having the audience to vote – definitely this is not the way to do an objective vote. In that fashion all the entries, who had more friends brought to the venue of the event – these ones are the ones that have the most chances of winning.
Secondly – the fault with the technical equipment that we (as well as some of the other participants) had yesterday – I would like to congratulate the organizers for rescreening the movies again. They have kept their promise.
Thirdly – most of the movies that were screened today (because yesterday it was way too late already) were submitted way beyond the deadline. In that sense, what the purpose of setting a time limit in the rules? What’s the point of having rules in that sense actually?
Fourthly – some movies were sent to the Cinemasports screening of foreign movies in Paris and Frankfurt. I was told that our movie was also one of the Bulgarian entries that were sent for screening. But was that actually true? How could we know that?
Anyhow. Above are just a few comments that might be way too emotional at some moments. The competition is now over. Everything is in the past. So it’s time to chill out and just enjoy the work we have done. Our movie is a quite a maginificent piece of work of cinematic art. Soon you’ll have the opportunity to see (if you haven’t attended the Cinemasports screenings) it in here as we’ll put a small, compressed web version of the movie.
