ACCEPTANCE LETTER

 

Congratulations! This is your official acceptance letter for all of the 2020/2021 MEGAFEST events. Thank you for your great work. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with you.

 

STEP 1: Please read this page carefully. Everything you need to know about getting your accepted work to us and attending MegaFest can be found below.

 

Please do not contact the theater directly with screening questions or event questions. The theater can not and will not assist you. While your project is important to us, and we want to honor you and your work, please understand that there will be 700+ screenings. The needs and requirements for your project's screening and all that is associated with it are handled by the AOF MegaFest, not the theater.  All theater questions must be directed to MegaFest directors Del Weston or Theresa Weston. Please do not show up at the theater and request theater staff assistance. If you do this, we have no choice but to pull your project, with no refund to fees you've incurred. 

 

If you have additional questions (after reading this letter in its entirety), please email Del at efcfilmco@gmail.com  (with technical/screening questions) and Theresa at theresa@actiononfilmfest.com with all other questions. Please email one or the other Not both.

 

STEP 2: Email Theresa at theresa@actiononfilmfest.com with your project name in the subject line, along with the name of the festival you're accepted into, the project type (film, written word, art etc), and whether or not you are attending (attendance is not mandatory but is highly recommended). This is to confirm you have received your acceptance, that you have read the letter in its entirety, and that you understand the MegaFest guidelines and rules.
