Well maybe they skipped the emails to make it less confusing. There was much debate last year over what the emails meant, people wanting to hold out hope, etc. Maybe they got bombarded with replies to those emails.

I followed the twitter link - they didn't answer the people asking if finalists had been notified.

Eventually they will have to set up a better system to notify those who have entered, also once i got to the festival, the winners/ top three were made pretty evident hours before the award show. It was disappointing.

Just got my finalist notification email. I'm stoked!
I totally also submitted to Austin, so I'm not sure how that's gonna play out. I forwarded the contract the my agent (hip-pocket); hopefully, he's still reading my emails...

I assume it's all above board, but anyone else got opinions about the contract or the no-other-contests rule?

Wow. That seems late for a notification. Thought they were supposed to go out on the 5th. I guess they're running behind. Hopefully I get one!

Congrats, by the way! So awesome to see people win things here!

The contract pretty much says that for about 4 months you are Fox's bitch. lol You can't enter this particular script to ANY OTHER competitions until the awards are over. AND CONGRATS!

Congrats! What's your pilot about? Can you give a logline or anything?

I think all the finalists would have gotten their emails yesterday when you did. At least I know I can enter mine in other contests now

It really sucks that NYTVF is the SAME weekend as Austin Film Festival. I've been looking into NYTVF and honestly, I'd rather go to Austin. NYTVF seems more geared toward folks with produced indie pilots. I'm a comedy writer looking to get staffed, so I feel like I'd be better off going to Austin.

Anyone got any opinions on NYTVF?

Thanks!

I went to NYTVF and I wrote a little bit about my experience here. I would say that I wouldn't have attended if I knew they were going to make the top three so damn clear. LOL I did meet some cool people, but it didn't really lead to anything. Mentioning that I was a finalist did get me reads when I used it with my queries but that was about it.
